The Balloon’s Going Up For Nurses’ Pay Campaign

11 February 2004


The Balloon’s Going Up
For Nurses’ Pay Campaign

On Friday 13th February members of the New Zealand Nurses Organisation will mark the 2004 launch of their Fair Pay Campaign symbolically across the country.

In most centres the Black Friday launch will be marked by the mass release of black and purple balloons in the DHBs and public places.

Nurses will wear black and purple and highlight the campaign with Fair Pay banners and stickers.

Nurses are paid less than many other professions with similar skills, experience and qualifications. The NZNO campaign goal is to achieve pay rates for nurses, which recognise their skills, experience and qualifications.

Nurses covered by the Lower North Island Multi Employer Agreement (MECA), from seven Lower North Island DHBs, will attend meetings on February 13th to hear report backs on an employer offer to settle their MECA negotiations.
