Testing times for pathology
Dorevitch Pathology workers have once again committed to an indefinite strike against an ‘immoral’ 0% pay rise offer. Health Services Union Secretary Diana Asmar said workers have returned to work after issuing an ultimatum for Dorevitch to produce a fair pay offer or workers would strike again.
Ms Asmar said workers had waited since 2007 for new pay deal. “Primary Health, the company that owns Dorevitch, issued a statement that their profits have gone up on last year, now at $92 million with reported revenue at $1.7 billion,” she said. “It is immoral that they should offer their workers a 0% pay rise after making them wait 10 years.”
A Dorevitch Pathology spokesperson said they had experienced minimal disruption to services but did not comment on the lack of pay increases. (Source: Border Mail)
