"For those of our DHB members who belong to the PSA, now is your opportunity to have your say.
The PSA will be going into negotiations with the DHB'S but first are asking their membership what they are looking for going forward.
While salary is always top of the list for some it is important to consider other factors from which you could benefit e.g. salary linked to qualifications and registration. there has been talk for around 2 years of making the merit step programme more accessible and relevant to technicians but we have still to see this come to fruition. It is similar to the nurses PDRP in that you get an allowance on top of your salary if you achieve merit step. I know only of around 4 technicians who have done so.
Please put your ideas forward to your local delegate. This is your opportunity to push for change"
