Resident doctors’ union and DHBs to negotiate ahead of possible strike
Negotiations are back on the table between the resident doctors’ union and district health boards ahead of a proposed strike next week.
The New Zealand Resident Doctors’ Association (RDA), which represents up to 90 per cent of the workforce, issued a strike notice on December 31, after nearly a year of negotiations.
About 3300 resident doctors plan to strike for 48 hours from 7am on January 15, over better pay and working conditions.
If they could come to an agreement the strike would not go ahead.
