Nurses say no to District Health Boards’ offer

25 May 2015

Nurses, midwives and health care assistants working in the 20 District Health Boards (DHBs) around the country have voted overwhelmingly not to accept the DHBs’ proposed multi-employer collective agreement.

“26,000 DHB staff belong to the New Zealand Nurses Organisation (NZNO) and they have made it very clear that the DHBs need to step up and propose a fair deal,” says NZNO industrial adviser, Lesley Harry.
“On Thursday we will be taking our members’ issues back to the negotiating table and we hope the strong vote against the offer will result in the DHBs reconsidering their offer.”
