Progress on Award change with Ministry

Our Union welcomes the appointment of Susan Pearce as Secretary of NSW Health and ASMOF NSW President Dr Tony Sara will be meeting with her on May 9 to brief her on our Time's Up campaign and the need for Award modernisation. 

ASMOF continues to meet with the Ministry to develop a Memorandum of Understanding on Award negotiations without the constraints of the wages cap.

Award reform is desperately needed to ensure that we can safely deliver high quality, 24/7 care that the medical workforce is expected to provide.  The MOU will set out the process and timeline for developing a contemporary Award framework for both our senior and junior members, and we will notify all members when the MOU is finalised.

Dr Tony Sara has shared a video message with members on why we have decided to include a levy on fees in 2022. Watch it here:
