Medical officers agreement

Posted June 23, 2012 by Alex Scott

All RMOs and SMOs must now be aware that QH has made an offer to its employee doctors that seriously erodes their pay and conditions and has the potential to create the perfect environment for a "Bundaberg 2". The government is not likely to shift from this offer without a very significant groundswell of opposition to it

It is unprecedented in recent history that doctors are coming forward wanting to do something urgently to prevent this - wanting to join together with colleagues and take industrial action. Together's members and non-members are telling us they not only want to sign our petition and wear stickers in support of negotiations but they also want to demonstrate their concern more emphatically by marching to Parliament House.

Because it is only large numbers of doctors (united in their calls for change, united in a resolve to take certain action, and committed to protecting and promoting a safe and healthy environment for themselves and their patients) that will shift government, union density is crucial at this time.

If you are not a member of Together we cannot stress more strongly you need to JOIN NOW without any delay.

A membership form is available here for you to sign and fax back.

Note: being a member of a professional association does not equate to membership of a union that can facilitate the taking of industrial action and protect you and your employment conditions from attack.
