Nurses in Jersey have voted to accept their latest pay offer from the States.

The improved offer was made in March after a rejected offer from the States at the start of the year.

3/4 of those who voted chose to accept the offer.

We’re pleased to be able to draw a line under this negotiation round, which has been bitter and difficult at times.

It is a huge disappointment to us that it took the historic step of the threat of a strike ballot to shift the thinking of the States. Our position over the months has never changed: pay our nurses fairly.

– Lindsay Meeks, Royal College of Nurses
