New South Wales Labor decided in May that it no longer supports its 2015 and 2019 policy for mandated nurse-to-patient ratios in hospitals. Niko Leka reports.

The NSW government enacted new anti-protest laws with Labor's support, but it is having difficulty getting its new anti-union laws through. Jim McIlroy reports.
