Nurses are warning the public to avoid hospitals next Wednesday amid protests following the breakdown of talks with the government over pay and conditions.

Nurses will walk off the job from 11am to 2.30pm for a walkout meeting to protest the government’s refusal to introduce nurse-to-patient ratios.

“We are advising the public to avoid hospitals if you can on October 12 for a couple of hours between midday and 2pm,” Australian Nurses Federation WA secretary Janet Rea said.

“Give nurses the opportunity to come, talk and discuss action and get what they deserve.”

ANF ​​warns that the meeting will only be the beginning of mass action, which will increase if the government does not come to the negotiating table.

The state government is currently in talks with a number of public sector unions and last month was forced to table its third pay offer in less than a year.
