Federally, the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation has called on the Aged Care Minister to stop national aged care provider Southern Cross Care from carrying out wide-ranging nursing cuts and underpaying other workers at its aged care facilities.

In a media release, Federal Secretary Lee Thomas said the ANMF is horrified at the cuts to the work hours of registered, enrolled nurses and assistants in nursing (AIN), with care hour cuts and pay disputes spanning this provider in Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania.
