Nearly 12,000 unionised health workers have voted in favour of taking industrial action, after they were offered an "insulting" pay increase, the Public Service Association says.
The workers, who staff every District Health Board across the country, include mental and public health nurses, physiotherapists, anaesthetic technicians, dental therapists, administrative staff and a number of other occupational groups.
They were offered a 0.7 per cent pay increase per year and no movement on other issues including training and professional development, PSA national secretary Richard Wagstaff said.
