Nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants around the country have rejected the latest offer from District Health Boards in their collective agreement negotiations. Nurses want to achieve pay rates that provide for a sustainable workforce, and healthy workplaces. The DHBs have agreed to continue with mediation with NZNO to try and resolve the issues raised.
DHBs need to pay nursing and midwifery teams delivering our healthcare services fairly for their skills. We need to retain and attract enough healthcare professionals to meet our country’s growing health needs and ensure we all have a high quality, safe modern healthcare system in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Please help our nursing and midwifery teams guarantee the future of our health services and show we really value the care they deliver to our communities, whānau and friends.15,297 signatures
Dear District Health Board Chief Executives
Nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants are the heart of our public healthcare services.
Their skills, hard work and compassion keep all New Zealanders happy, safe, and healthy.
I support better pay and healthy workplaces in our public healthcare services for our precious nursing and midwifery teams.
Please keep our local health services safe and sustainable by delivering our nurses a better deal.
