Nurses have announced they will go on a day long strike later this month, after they rejected the Government's pay offer last week.

But the DHBs aren't taking the news lightly, saying the Nurses’ Union has refused to guarantee capacity for life saving services.

DHBs have now asked the employment court to ensure there is emergency cover during the strike
