Members at Albury-Wodonga Private Hospital enlisted the support of doctors and other hospital staff to pressure management to provide a fair pay.
Doctors sported campaign badges and armbands as a mark of solidarity with the nurses they work along side, explained Branch President Anne Fletcher.
‘We have been seeking the support of the hospital community in our campaign. We spoke to the doctors and outlined our claim for better pay and conditions and we asked for their support – and they have been sympathetic,’ said Anne.
‘They were shocked to realise there was such a big difference in pay between us and nurses in public hospitals.
‘One doctor has written to the CEO to express his concern and support.’
