Nurses play hardball on pay

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 19 February, 2013 - 12:00 PM
Industrial action by nurses will close 1 in 5 beds to selected patients in Perth hospitals.

WA nurses have voted to escalate their industrial campaign by closing down one in five hospital beds. Paul Murray spoke to State Secretary of the Australian Nurses Federation Mark Olson about their aggressive pay negotiation tactics.

 

 

Blog comments Your Say

  • To open a school for nrnsiug or any profession requires an administration and staff of at least a dozen or more people who are highly educated and experienced in the selected profession and allied profession. After that you will spend several years laying out your curriculum and facilities, then submitting your plans to the state board of Whatever , and waiting for a favorable review that releases you to start spending the first of millions of dollars just to survive the first year.If you can't stand the pain of educating yourself to become a nurse, why do you think anyone would let you open a facility to teach nrnsiug? What would be your qualifications?

  • I think it's disgraceful how the nurses are being treated. We need our nurses, especially when we are opening up new public hospitals soon. The way the nurses are being bullied and threatened by the people who supposedly look after their nurses, is shameful. Let's get our nurses what they deserve, a decent pay and conditions, so they can continue their great job.

  • Our simple "caring" has become a number-crunching callousness.
    Nurses have to recognized, acknowledged and paid appropiately, but Mark Olsen shouldn't be the spokesperson.
    Nurses, pay your Union dues to someone with a soul and not a loud, clever and quick-mouthed person.
