More staffing and a 3% pay rise: Sydney aged care nurses protest outside Allity facility

Published on

The Daily Tele is reporting that the group of nine nurses from Allity’s Red leaf manor home in concord want a designated number of nurses and carers on each shift plus a 3% pay rise.

The NSW Nurse and Midwives Association said the home had been “stringing out” a new enterprise agreement which was delayed by 18 months.

However, Allity says that nurses received a pay increase of 2.35% last month.

We note that their demands match those of New Zealand’s aged care nurses who have been striking there.
