A statement of support for striking nurses in Aotearoa/New Zealand.

Aotearoa Workers Solidarity Movement (AWSM) expresses its support to the 30,000 plus nurses who are going on an eight-hour strike today across Aotearoa/New Zealand. The strike is an indication of the stress and frustration caused to personnel in the health sector. Despite sacrifices made during the worst period of the covid crisis, nurses are being undervalued by District Health Boards (DHB) now that pay negotiations are being entered into.

We hope today’s action will be the start of a healthier approach towards those who take care of the most vulnerable in society. AWSM has participated in pickets during previous nurses’ strikes, for example in 2018 and we encourage our members and supporters and the public at large to show support to the strikers this time as well.

An injury to one is an injury to all!
