Health Minister to meet nurses on strike at Parliament

From Checkpoint, 6:14 pm on 8 June 2021

Rallies and picket lines are organised across the country and tomorrow nurses will strike after negotiations with district health boards reached a stalemate.

At least 30,000 nurses will take part in the eight-hour strike, having overwhelmingly rejected district health boards' latest offer on pay and conditions.

Hospitals will remain open, and there will still be essential, life-saving services. Amy Williams filed this report.
