The State Opposition Leader, Mark McGowan, says he is willing to work with the government to resolve a pay dispute with nurses.
The Australian Nursing Federation is pushing for a 20 per cent increase over three years and members have threatened to strike for 24-hours on Monday if they do not get an offer from the Health Department.
The Industrial Relations Commission last night ordered nurses to cease industrial action but ANF secretary Mark Olson says they have refused to comply.
"The beds will remain closed and the industrial action will go ahead on Monday," he said.
The Department maintains it can not make a pay offer while the government is in caretaker mode before the election.
Mr McGowan has told the ABC's 730WA says the government can make a decision if it has the Opposition's approval.
"The Caretaker Conventions allow for the government to work out solutions to these problems during the caretaker period if the Opposition Leader is involved," he said.
"So I'll sit down with them, let them work out a solution and I'm happy to be bound by whatever that solution is if I'm successful at the election.
"This is a bipartisan approach, it's allowed under the caretaker convention, it's up to Mr Barnett whether he wants to accept it, or not."
