Next week’s nurses’ strike averted

The New Zealand Nurses Organisation and the country’s District Health Boards today agreed a revised offer that will be taken to NZNO nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants next week.

The planned strike by nurses scheduled for next Thursday 5 July has been called off after discussions in Wellington over the last two days.

DHB spokesperson Helen Mason says the Terms of Settlement will be finalised over the weekend and NZNO has advised strike notice for Thursday for 5th of July will be withdrawn so it can ballot its members.

“DHBs will be contacting patients to let them know what this means for services next week, and contingency planning will continue for potential strike action on Thursday 12 July.

“Details of the offer will not be released until next week and in the meantime and there will be no further comment at this time.”
