Thank you for the support you have given to me for another four years
A message from Lee Thomas, ANMF Federal Secretary
Fighting any Government attack on penalty rates, saving our Universal healthcare system, improving workloads and tackling aged care staffing problems. These are the key issues you have trusted me to fight for on your behalf over the next four years, and I will work tirelessly with Sally-Anne Jones, Annie Butler and Maree Burgess to tackle each of them at a federal level.
Nurses and midwives deserve respect for our commitment and dedication to the sick and vulnerable, whenever and wherever they need us. This includes working shifts 24/7 – missing our families and public holidays, community activity and weekend events.
We know what we give up to be there 24/7 – and we must ensure that your penalty rates are safe from any Abbott Government attack. Protecting our professions will be a priority over the next four years at the ANMF.
This is my guarantee to you.
