Talks To Avert A Strike Continue

10.30 PM WEDNESDAY 8 NOVEMBER, 2006

Talks will continue tomorrow to try and prevent the strike by radiographers in seven District Health Boards.

Radiographers or Medical Radiation Technologists at seven DHBs - Southland, Otago, Hutt Valley, Lakes (Rotorua), and Bay of Plenty plan to stop work for 10 days from Friday 10 November, Canterbury will be affected for nine days and Tairawhiti (Gisborne) for five days.

Chai Chuah, CEO of Hutt Valley District Health Board and Spokesperson for the DHBs, says DHBs and the radiographers’ union met with a mediator in Auckland today and will resume tomorrow.

“We will continue tomorrow to see if we can find some common ground for a settlement. We will be making no further comment while the talks continue.”
