NZNO: Chief Executive releases detail of results

Chief Executive releases detail of results

Chief Executive Memo Musa says, that in consultation with key NZNO staff, and following the conclusion of bargaining NZNO has made the decision to release the overall details of the DHB MECA ratification vote. As announced this Tuesday the ratification of the final offer was accepted by a significant majority of members covered by the NZNO/DHB Nursing and Midwifery MECA.

He says due to the high profile nature of this negotiation process and the large amount of social media comment suggesting NZNO has misrepresented the facts of the vote result, he now declares:

“The percentage of votes in favour of the fifth DHB MECA offer as returned by Electionz.com is 64.1 percent to accept the offer and 35.9 percent to reject the offer.

“The previous offer result was 49.4% to accept the offer and 50.6% to reject the offer.

“As said last time the vote result was very close and this time there was a significant majority accepting the offer.

“We are now focused on implementation. The organisation is strong and growing and I am proud of the hard work of my colleagues, the delegates and members that have undertaken to achieve a MECA which lays down the foundations for a safer and rewarding career in nursing,” Memo Musa said.

ENDS.
