GP nurses, staff to strike


Wellington: About 3200 nurses and medical administra­tive staff at GP clinics and medical centres are expected to strike next month.

The New Zealand Nurses Organisati­on (NZNO) yesterday issued a strike notice covering more than 500 practices nationwide, a 24hour strike was set for Monday, November 9, and another two weeks later on November 23.

This follows two national stopwork meetings, and a oneday strike last month.

The union has previously said nurses working in primary care were paid about 10% less than those in hospitals. — RNZ
