HSU Win: NSW Labor commits to health inquiry

Because of HSU members demanding action, today NSW Labor has committed to establishing a Special Commission of Inquiry into NSW Health funding should it be elected on March 25.

Meeting with members at Blacktown Hospital, Labor Leader Chris Minns MP and Shadow Health Minister Ryan Park MP announced that if elected, a Labor Government will investigate where the $33 billion in health spending is going.

HSU members have called on all politicians from all sides of politics to Fix NSW Health by calling for a Royal Commission. We need to find out where the health dollar is being spent, so we can make sure it gets to where it needs to be – health workers and their communities.

Today’s announcement is proof that when HSU members raise their voices together, we get things done. We won’t give up until our hospitals and health facilities are properly staffed, and health workers can once again bargain for a fair wage increase.

Do you know someone who isn’t an HSU member? Encourage them to join our Union today and have a say at work. We are always stronger when we stand together.
