Revised offer to be considered by nurses

District Health Boards have given NZNO a revised offer for its members to consider over the coming week.

The revised offer is being sent by NZNO to its nurses, midwives and healthcare assistant members with the Union’s recommendation to accept.

DHB spokesperson Helen Mason is pleased the NZNO has taken the revised offer to its members to consider in detail.

“The revised offer means more people will receive pay rises, there are increased commitments to addressing workforce issues and a firm undertaking to implement the outcome of the pay equity discussions with the NZNO.

“DHBs are continuing to plan for the second strike that is scheduled for 24 hours from 7:00am on Thursday 12 July.

“We hope nurses will look carefully at the revised offer, which reflects NZNO members’ strong feedback.”

Information about the offer has been posted on the TAS and NZNO websites and there will be no further comment in the meantime.
