State’s top doc pleads for end to nurse, Govt pay stand-off

The Australian Medical Association has thrown its support behind WA’s embattled nurses in their fight for better working conditions, with the State’s top doctor urging the McGowan Government to work with the union.

Health Minister Amber-Jade Sanderson and Premier Mark McGowan said this week the Government would be ruling out a 10 per cent increase to pay for nurses and midwives.

It came after 2500 members of the Australian Nursing Federation met on Wednesday to vote for improved wages and staff conditions.
