Members at a recent Regional Imaging Gippsland mass meeting unanimously rejected the current management offer for their EA and endorsed the lodging of a Protected Action Ballot application.

“Members feel that not enough progress has been made despite having made a number of concessions during this lengthy process,” said VAHPA Lead Organiser, Linda Jenkin.

“This is not an action that Members have rushed to. They have decided to take this step after months of talks,” concluded Jenkin.

Paperwork is currently being prepared for the Fair Work Commission.
