Next steps to facilitation for NZNO DHB MECA


The NZNO DHB MECA negotiation team concluded mediation with the DHB just before 7pm this evening, Monday 25 June and did not reach agreement with District Health Boards on a settlement that the NZNO MECA bargaining team was prepared to recommend.


We are now waiting for confirmation of dates for Facilitation. This is a more formal process under the Employment Relations Act in an endeavour to resolve the impasse in bargaining.


We will continue on with the preparations for strike action on the Thursday 5th and Thursday 12th July, including preparations for life preserving services and national emergency management processes.


Until this formal process is concluded we will not be making any comment or giving any interviews on the negotiation process.
