Bulletin 8 - Reminder to vote - issued 4 April 2022

The ballot for the proposed Medical Officers NTPS 2022 – 2025 Enterprise Agreement closes at 10:30am on Friday, 8 April 2022.

If you haven’t already voted, then I encourage you to take part in this ballot by casting your vote.

All Medical Officers are entitled to vote. You do not have to be a member of the Australian Salaried Medical Officers’ Federation (NT) to vote in the ballot.

Make your vote count

If majority of Medical Officers who vote, vote yes, and the agreement is approved by the Fair Work Commission, the significant improvements to terms and conditions of employment for Medical Officers will be implemented.

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

If the vote isn’t supported the current agreement will continue to apply, the lump sum payments can’t be passed on nor the offered improvements to conditions.
