You should have received an email from the Northern Territory Electoral Commission (NTEC) with instructions on how to vote electronically using the NTEC ‘Netvote’ system.

Northern Territory Electoral Commission

The Northern Territory Electoral Commission is an independent authority who manages the ballot process and counting of the votes.

The NTEC ballot process ensures that all medical officers personal details remain confidential, and that voting preferences cannot be identified.

I will advise medical officers of the ballot result via a bulletin and a notice on the OCPE webpage for the Medical Officers Enterprise Agreement Negotiations.

Make your vote count

Every vote is important and can make a difference, and I encourage you to take part in this ballot by casting your vote.

New offer

If the majority of medical officers who vote, vote yes and the Fair Work Commission approves the agreement, the current agreement will be replaced.

I am offering $10,000 in lump sum payments over 4 years. To see what it’s worth click here.
