Industrial action – APEX union psychologists


A strike by APEX union psychologists will begin at 8am Wednesday 31 July and end at 8am on Tuesday 3 September. During the strike period, psychologists who are APEX union members and choose to strike will not carry out any overtime work, either paid or unpaid. Patient safety remains our priority and we are continuing to provide psychology services throughout the strike periods.
