APEX And NZMLWU Announce Their Amalgamation

APEX And the NZ Medical Laboratory Workers’ Union Announce Their Amalgamation

APEX and the New Zealand Medical Laboratory Workers’ Union (NZMLWU) have confirmed their amalgamation into a single entity. The move was approved by the Executive Committees of both unions and confirmed during their July 3 AGMs, following the completion of due diligence processes.

APEX National President, Mr Peter Gene and NZMLWU National President, Mr Stewart Smith, say “This is an exciting time for both APEX and NZMLWU. Whilst we have always had a close relationship, the amalgamation cements APEX’s position as the specialist allied, scientific and technical union in NZ, bringing our membership to over 4000 strong.”

Earlier in the year, the NZMLWU membership voted overwhelmingly in favour of the amalgamation and have now formally joined colleagues from the following health professions in one union:

Anaesthetic Technicians
Biomedical Engineers
Dental Therapists
Medical Physicists
Medical Radiation Technology (radiographers)
Occupational Therapists
Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians
Radiation Therapists
Scientific Officers
Social Workers
