What: Seeing Red Day
When: Friday 19 June 2020
Who: Primary health care nurses and workers
Where: Participating GP practices, medical centres, accident and emergency centres nationwide
On Friday 19 June primary health care workers will be highlighting the pay parity issue by holding a “Seeing Red Day” to demonstrate that they are in fact “Seeing Red”. Workplaces will be decked out in red and staff will wear items of red clothing.
An experienced nurse covered by the PHC MECA is currently paid 10.6 percent less than their DHB colleague with the same qualifications and experience.
