DHB MECA Update -  Industrial Action

On Wednesday 18 April the National Delegates Committee met. They confirmed that members will be balloted on industrial action, and they determined the nature of the industrial action.

The Industrial Action ballot will commence on Monday 23 April.

The proposed industrial action that members will be voting on will involve two 24 hour stoppages at all DHBs. The first strike action is proposed to take place on 5 July and the second action is proposed to take place on 12 July.

The proposed dates for industrial action provides for the completion of the Independent Panel Process and for any improved offer to go out to members for a ratification vote.

Should any improved offer not meet members expectations and therefore not be ratified then NZNO will be required to give at least 14 days notice of industrial action to the DHBs of the first and second  strike dates (5 & 12 July as above).

You will receive more information on strike action soon.
