13 Jun Proposed MOU Framework for Negotiation
Contract negotiations between disability providers and the Ministry of Health over the coming period will inevitably have a strong focus on the impacts of implementing the equal pay settlement.

NZDSN is proposing that a Memorandum of Understanding be signed between NZDSN (on behalf of Disability Providers) and the Ministry. Click here to read the draft MOU.
NZDSN is awaiting a response from the Ministry.
