Tomorrow health workers across NSW are taking industrial action.
Health workers know why – it’s time for a pay rise. It’s time to put an end to this Government stealing half of your salary packaging benefits. It’s time for an increase to superannuation. It’s time to fix out of date Awards.
It’s been two months. But this Government has been silent on pay for health workers.
