Health Minister head-to-head with union live on-air amid nurse walk out
Health Minister Brad Hazzard has addressed the nurses’ union live on-air amid planned strike action.
Mr Hazzard says it’s “disappointing” nurses are pushing ahead with their strike action, in defiance of a decision from the industrial watchdog.
Thousands of staff from 150 public hospitals are walking off the job today as part of the long-running fight over staffing levels and pay.
NSW Nurses and Midwives’ Association General Secretary Brett Holmes joined the Minister on air to make a plea on behalf of the fighting nurses.
