ANF (Vic Branch)
supports the Queensland Nurses Union
in their fight to retain frontline health
care positions including 45 nursing positions at Townsville Hospital
which will cut 130 EFT in total from the local community's health services.
Queensland nurses and
midwives are in our thoughts as they fight to protect their jobs, the quality
of health care in Queensland and to stop the resulting compromise of patient
Stand for Qld
In addition Queensland unions are currently
embroiled in a "thousand day campaign" to defend Queensland workers
and communities against the Newman LNP government cutbacks .
The Newman cuts are affecting all of
Queensland's services, just as Baillieu cuts are threating Victoria's
Firefighters and decimating our TAFEs.
ANF members are encouraged to voice their support
for their colleagues in Queensland who are facing such uncertain times by
posting a message on the Stand for QLD Facebook page
