Previous industrial action included social media campaigning and wearing campaign t-shirts.

They joined Nurses and Midwives across South Australia on September 30after receiving an offer from the South Australian government addressingtheir enterprise bargaining claims.

The new offer includesapay increases of 2.5% each year which will see South Australian nurses amongst the best paid in Australia.

Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (ANMF) SA Branch CEOElizabeth Dabars welcomed the progression.

“We are pleased the SA Government has approved an offer that appears to deal with the substantial issues raised,” she said.

“As a sign of good faith, our Bargaining Committee and Executive have agreed to suspend our industrial campaign whilst we check the details of the offer and iron out any last matters.”

Ms Dabars said the ANMF SA Branch is delighted the offer addressesall of the key issues members have been campaigning for including:

improved minimum staffing levels – particularly for aged care beds in country health services;changes to classification structures that will improve career development for enrolled nurses in particular;increased support for professional development and workforce renewal strategies which shouldhelp new graduates obtain work and allow experienced nurses and midwives to mentor them as they prepare to exit the workforce themselves;provision of additional incentives to nurses and midwives when offered separation packages;restoring paid overtime and related conditions for middle level nurses undertaking clinical activities after hours; andMs Dabars said the checking process should be completed early next week after which time the ANMF (SA Branch) Executive will make a recommendation to members on a final response to the offer.

That will be determined through a vote of all public sector nurses in the coming weeks.
