The nurses union wants the new Health Minister to intervene on delays to payouts. 

Te Whatu Ora owes nearly two billion dollars to nurses after failing to meet Holiday Act requirements, and its only paid roughly $250,000 back. 

The union says the rest of the money, owed from 2010 onwards, has been pushed back. 

Nurses Organisation President Kerri Nuku told Mike Hosking that they'll be writing to the minister. 

She says deadlines keep getting pushed back and they want clarity.
