Public statement on behalf of NZNO President Grant Brookes

Public statement on behalf of NZNO President Grant Brookes

It has recently come to light that a petition is circulating among members of the New Zealand Nurses Organisation Tōpūtanga Tapuhi Kaitiaki o Aotearoa, calling for a Special General Meeting. The motion to be put to the proposed SGM makes reference to the NZNO President, Grant Brookes. It states:

“That this Special General Meeting of NZNO expresses confidence in the NZNO President, supports him to serve his three-year term in accordance with his 2018 election pledge that NZNO will be open and responsive to members, and calls on the Board of Directors to work together for the benefit of NZNO members and the health of Aotearoa/NZ.”

I am representing Mr Brookes in legal matters relating to his role. He naturally welcomes expressions of confidence in his leadership and agrees that the Board of Directors, which he co-chairs, should work together for the benefit of members and the health of New Zealand.

My client will be making no further public comment at this time.
