NZNO responds to DHBs taking nurses to employment court

From Morning Report, 8:27 am on 3 August 2021

The DHBs are taking nurses to the Employment Court, accusing them of not doing enough to guarantee safe staffing levels during a planned strike this month.

Nurses have formally declared they will walk off the job again on August 19, as negotiations to improve patient safety in hospitals fail.

The nurses rejected the latest pay offer by the district health boards last week.

NZ Nurses Organisation spokesperson Glenda Alexander spoke to Susie Ferguson.
