The announcement was made on Monday evening.
With a three-day strike action due to begin tomorrow (Tuesday 12 February), it has been announced that the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation will suspend the nurses' strike while they consider the Labour Court's recommendations.
The INMO released the following statement via their Twitter account:
"Members' update: The INMO's elected Executive Council have just received the recommendation by the Labour Court. They have suspended the upcoming strikes at the request of the Court to consider the wide-ranging recommendations.
"Members will receive more information on the proposals in the coming days and the recommendation will be put to a ballot.
"In the meantime, we’d ask you to stay united and support your colleagues. The only reliable source of information on these proposals is the INMO, so please pay attention to official communications."
Over the weekend, over 20,000 people turned out on the streets of Dublin in public support of the nurses, while another protest took place outside Simon Harris' family home on Sunday afternoon.
