Testing times for pathology
Dorevitch Pathology workers have once again committed to an indefinite strike against an ‘immoral’ zero per cent 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 $1.7billion,” she said. “It is immoral that they should offer their workers a zero percent 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.
