ANMF Congratulates Anthony Albanese on Election Win

22 May 2022

The country’s largest union, the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (ANMF), congratulates Anthony Albanese and the Australian Labor Party (ALP) on last night’s federal election victory.

The ANMF and its membership of over 310,000 nurses, midwives, care workers and students are confident the new Albanese Government will deliver much-needed reforms for health, aged care, better wages for low-paid workers, gender equality and action on climate change.

“We are delighted that we finally have a Federal Government that has a real plan to fix the systemic issues in health and aged care,” ANMF Federal Secretary, Annie Butler, said today.

“Mr Albanese and his team, including Mark Butler and Clare O’Neil, have already listened to the ANMF and have committed to working with us to develop a health workforce which is ready and able to respond to Australia’s health needs.

“In aged care, the ALP has committed to funding legislating mandated staffing ratios in private aged care facilities, improving wages for the depleted workforce and making sure taxpayer-funds for providers are tied to direct care for residents.

“On behalf of our members across the country, the ANMF congratulates Mr Albanese and his team on winning government and we look forward to working with them in developing and delivering real solutions which can ensure fair and equitable outcomes in health and aged care for all Australians.”
