Bargaining Fee Ballot and New DHB MECA

ASMS members are urged to vote in favour of a bargaining fee and encourage your colleagues to do the same in the ballot held between now and 28 August at your DHB.

The ASMS Annual Conference voted to claim a bargaining fee because they were concerned at non-members getting all the benefits of the MECA without having made any contribution to the Association.  ASMS urges you to vote in favour of the bargaining fee.  All DHB employed SMOs (including Non-ASMS members) can vote in this ballot so it is important that ASMS members vote in favour of having a bargaining fee.
