Midwives support striking nurses

From Lately, 10:29 pm on 9 June 2021

Some midwives joined in with the nurses strike today- about 2-hundred midwives are in the nurses union. The majority are in the midwives union Meras, which is supporting the NZNO but can't strike because their pay deal is still under negotiation. The union's industrial co-leader is Jill Ovens.
