Psychiatric nurses withdraw 'goodwill' practices over Croke Park II

Psychiatric nurses have become the latest group of public servants set to withdraw 'goodwill' work practices.

The Psychiatric Nurses Association has announced that from next week, members will no longer use their own personal phones, or cars during work.

The PENA says the action is in response to the proposed cuts in the Croke Park II agreement.

Gardaí have already initiated a work to rule, withdrawing the use of personal phones, laptops and cars.
