Workers in other unions could not only learn from the Victorian nurses, but in light of the threatened fines and potential imprisonment, they could organise support, including striking, for the nurses.
For example shutting down public transport or building sites in Melbourne in support of nurses would escalate the dispute and give it an even better chance of winning and at the same time challenge the rotten restrictions on strikes under Labor's Orwellian legislation, the Fair Work Act.
The nurses' fight is our fight. Victory to Victorian nurses.
