In their 770 word report Scottish NHS strikes on hold while pay offer negotiated BBC Scotland finds no reason to mention the Scottish First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon’s role in averting once more a damaging NHS strike.
Note that no health service strikes have taken place in Scotland, in contrast with several including nurses and ambulance staff, in England& Wales. The First Minister and the Health Secretary have repeatedly met with unions.

Well, the Wyndham and Attleborough Mercury seems sure today:
The Royal College of Nursing Scotland has paused a formal announcement of strike action following further talks with the Scottish Government.
Talks took place on Friday January 13 with First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and RCN general secretary and chief executive, Pat Cullen.https://www.wymondhamandattleboroughmercury.co.uk/news/national/23250516.royal-college-nursing-scotland-announces-pause-strike-action/
