Doctors who took strike action for six weeks win ‘milestone’ pay rise

Salaried doctors will receive more pay and better leave entitlements.

Doctors who voted for work-to-rule industrial action have accepted a 3.5% pay rise after a new offer from the Tasmanian Government.  

The “milestone” deal was agreed around six weeks after AMA Tasmania members voted to work rostered hours only and to stop performing non-urgent administration work, including discharge summaries, outside of work hours.
