NSW Nurses' Association: News: NSW nurses and midwives to strike next Wednesday 24 July

NSW Nurses' Association: News: NSW nurses and midwives to strike next Wednesday 24 July | Allies against BOF | Scoop.it
MacJanet's insight:

At the NSWNMA's bimonthly Committee of Delegates meeting, on 21 May, workplace delegates from around the State rejected the inadequate offer. They are angry the O'Farrell Government is:

• refusing to extend mandated minimum nurse-to-patient ratios to seriously ill children, emergency departments, high dependency units and rural hospitals and multipurpose services, and provide safer nursing and midwifery staffing arrangements in community health services;
• seeking to further discount the annual 2.5 per cent payrise to absorb the scheduled 0.25 per cent rise in compulsory employer superannuation from 1 July 2013; and
• using dictatorial industrial relations powers to override the rights at work of public health system nurses and midwives.

The State Government is expected to get the NSW Industrial Relations Commission (NSW IRC) to this Friday, 19 July, make a new pay and conditions award for nurses and midwives, based on this sub-standard offer. Dictatorial industrial relations laws introduced by the O'Farrell Government, since its election in March 2011, have significantly reduced the independence of the NSW IRC in these matters.

No reductions in awards, no privatisation but a 5 year contract to state transit is designed to cut costs. Danger ahead. #nswpol
