Some nurses unhappy with fifth DHB pay offer

From Morning Report, 6:42 am on 26 July 2018

Some nurses are already criticising the latest pay offer from District Health Boards, even though their union is recommending they accept it. It's the fifth offer DHBs have made in recent weeks. The union says the revised offer retains previously offered benefits, addresses the issue of safer staffing, and brings forward a new top salary step for senior nurses. But comments made overnight on a Facebook group for nurses are overwhelmingly negative about the offer. The page is run by registered nurse, Danni Wilkinson, who has been critical of previous deals. She talks to Guyon Espiner.
