Strike Notices Withdrawn in Wake of Recent Earthquake

Strike Notices Withdrawn in Wake of Recent Earthquake

The New Zealand Resident Doctors’ Association (NZRDA) confirms that all strike notices issued to the 20 DHBs for the period 23 to 24 November will be withdrawn effective immediately.

“Whilst RDA members had planned to go ahead with another round of strike action next week, in light of the recent earthquake and associated difficulties facing the public, our National Executive has made the decision to withdraw the notices” says Dr Deborah Powell, National Secretary of the NZRDA.

We understand that this is a distressing time both for our communities and for the DHB staff in the earthquake-effected areas and we do not wish to add to this already stressful situation.

“Our thoughts are with all of those affected by the events that have recently taken place.”
