More than 3000 community nurses and administration staff will go on strike due to being “constantly undervalued”.

The nurses plan to walk off the job for two days in November. The first 24-hour strike will take place on 9 November, and the second on 23 November. 

A spokesperson for the nurses said that they want pay-parity with staff employed in District Health Boards (hospital nurses).

The November strikes follow two national rounds of stop-work meetings and a one day strike in September.

The strikes will cause major issues for medical centres around New Zealand.
