One News reports:
Seventeen Defence Force nurses were called in to help in hospitals during the recent nurses’ strike.
The Defence Minister, Ron Mark, made the statement in Parliament before Question Time this afternoon.
He said it followed a request from the Health Minister, David Clark, for a small detachment of Regular Force nurses able to perform general nursing duties in the event of a strike.
So Labour used the Defence Force to help bust the nurses union strike.
Imagine the outcry if National has done that.
