Nurses and midwives have voted to accept proposals for safer staffing.

62% of INMO members voted in favour of the proposals, which were put forward by the Labour Court following three strikes earlier this year.

The new measures also include higher salary scales and increased allowances for nurses and midwives.

INMO General Secretary, Phil Ní Sheaghdha, said they're now looking for an immediate meeting with the Government to ensure the proposals are implemented.

She explained: "INMO nurses and midwives fought hard for patient safety and staffing in a determined, controlled and collective manner.

"We are extremely proud of the safe, patient-focused strike organised by our strike committees.

"I would like to thank the public who showed Ireland’s nurses and midwives such support during our strike days.”

Tens of thousands of procedures were cancelled in hospitals across the country during the strikes earlier this year.

Further planned industrial action was suspended by unions after the Labour Court recommendations were issued.
