The threat of contempt action against the nurses' union is an assault not only on nurses but on every single worker in Australia, and our already very restricted right to strike. It is  happening under Gillard Labor's anti-worker 'Fair Work' Act. The trade union movement has the historic responsibility and opportunity to defend nurses and turn the tide in the one sided 30 year class war of the bosses against us by fighting back and defending the right to strike. When they jail a nurse for striking it's a rich pig's country still. Hand off our nurses, Baillieu and Gillard.
