It’s a leap year – traditionally when women can ask men to marry them. Wed on;t want that, Premier, but we do want another kind of legally binding contract.

It’s been 111 days since ANF first applied to FWA.
It’s 1,004 days until the next State election – that’s 2 years and 9 months from today.

We have 13,188 wonderful people liking us. And 22,412 people have- sorry, 22,417 people have signed our online petition, unless I click refresh. Then it’s 22,422 people.

The sky is clear, the sun is risen, and I’m leaving soon to join the walkouts. I look forward to seeing my colleagues in the flesh, and nurses from 14 other hospitals through the miracle of communications technology. We are united in spirit, we are in it for the long-haul (however much we may ask if we’re there yet) – we’re walking out today, and twice a day, every day, until this government sits at the negotiating table with ANF and an independent FWA umpire.
