Guarantees end of strike with nurses working (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

ensures

Here is my best explanation:

'guarantees' is the definition.

('ensure' can be a synonym of 'guarantee')

'end of strike with nurses working' is the subsidiary indication.

'end of' says to take the final letters.

'with' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'working' indicates anagramming the letters.

The final letter of 'strike' is 'e'.

'nurses' is an anagram of 'nsures'.

'e'+'nsures'='ensures'

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for ensures that I've seen before include "Warrant", "Guarantees", "Makes safe or certain" and "guarantees".)
