Luke Coxon, a lawyer for APEX, said the union was “extremely disappointed” that its Waikato Physio members had not yet received a written offer since April of this year. More than 50 Waikato physiotherapists and physiotherapy assistants went on strike this morning due to the interruption of wage negotiations between their apeX union and DHB. In the case of Waikato physiotherapists, they have not received a written salary offer since their collective agreement expired in April. Chief physiotherapist Nikki Laker says the impending strike will be the first in 21 years at the Waikato District Health Board. About 50 Waikato physiotherapists are on strike on their pay bags, while PSA physiotherapists and other associated health workers have now ratified their new salary agreement. APEX has 58 physiotherapists at Waikato DHB, most working on the Waikato Hospital campus. Physiotherapists plan to strike for 24 hours from Monday, November 19, unless an agreement is reached by then. Allied health PSA members – including physiotherapists – have voted to ratify a new collective agreement, and allied health members in the other 17 DHB are expected to vote in the same way, with formal ratification expected this week. Meanwhile, the Public Services Association (PSA) is expected to announce this week that around 9,000 allied health professionals – including physiotherapists – in the 20 DHB have voted to ratify a previously based agreement for the NZNO nurses` scheme.
