As The Lamp went to press, an initial offer has been received from Healthscope, another major private hospital employer. The NSWNA has responded on behalf of nurses requesting Healthscope to review and improve the offer. Further talks are scheduled for early March.
… as do the independents
Intensive talks are also continuing with Leanna Street Consulting representing about 30 independent private hospitals. The NSWNA believes the talks are being conducted in good faith. Two further meetings have been scheduled for the first week of March. The NSWNA is hopeful of having an offer worthy of consideration to put to members in March.
