This month's Activate includes a special message from Chair of RCN Council Kath McCourt, on the proposals for RCN boards arising from the Legal and Governance Review.
It’s a busy time for activists, with many important issues to consider. In this issue RCN Chief Executive & General Secretary Dr Peter Carter explains why it’s important to respond to the NMC’s proposals to increase registration fees and Josie Irwin clarifies the NHS Staff Side position on plans to make changes to the Agenda for Change contract in England. Representatives in England can find out more about the survey to gauge views in New survey: RCN reps set to defend AfC in England.
Activate’s regular legal column looks at the right to a fair trial and other articles cover why learning representatives are essential to staff side meetings and why suspension should be a last resort for employers.
Don't forget to take a look at this month's Tools of the Trade.
