A recent report has unveiled that the Royal District Nurses have now started another industrial campaign, which has been targeting St Kilda Headquarters located in Alma Road.
It has been found that the decision to conduct this industrial action has been taken after a meeting held last week between RDNS management and the nurse union.
The RDNS nurses are responsible for providing care to a total of 35,000 clients all over Victoria as well as Melbourne.
While previously the nurses had announced clerical bans, it is for the first time ever that HQ has been made a target for rallying as a part of total five planned stop works. It is being said that the meeting had been held as nurses were demanding a rise in their wages.
Also, they were seeking the reason for which Premier Ted Baillieu denied any grant to the RDNS. Believing that they are being treated as less than hospital nurses, the RDNS nurses had been looking for an answer if they would be allowed for back pay entitlements from March 21.
But, industrial action after the same is being seen as a result of a decision taken against their demands. "Stopping work is extremely difficult and nurses only do it when managements and governments stop listening", said Victorian Branch Secretary Lisa Fitzpatrick.
