Taranaki DHB misses OIA request deadline

Taranaki DHB misses OIA request deadline

The New Zealand Medical Laboratory Workers Union has today lodged a complaint with the Ombudsman over Taranaki DHB’s failure to supply official information requested by the union within the statutory timeframe of 20 working days.

“We have been seeking this information since December,” said union advocate David Munro. “Being forced to use the OIA process to get information that should have been readily and willingly made available to the union is disgraceful enough,” he said, “but for the DHB to then fail to meet the deadline defies belief.”

The DHB has undertaken to have some information to the union by Thursday this week. In conclusion Mr Munro remarked that, “I very much hope that the DHB at least holds true to that promise because our trust and confidence in their ability to handle this laboratory restructure is fast ebbing away.”

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
