The generous and expensive deals with the unions just keep on coming under Daniel Andrews.
It looks like today Daniel Andrews has agreed with the nurses’ union on a deal that will give pay rises of up to 37%.
The fact that the nurses’ union is prepared to agree to a deal lasting eight years is a sure sign they’ve gotten everything they wanted out of this government.
Daniel Andrews needs to guarantee that the hundreds of millions of additional dollars that this agreement will cost Victorian hospitals and health services will be fully funded by his government and that hospitals and health services won’t have to cut patient care to pay for this expensive deal.
