Community health centre dentists to take unprecedented 24-hour stop-work action
Public sector dentists working at 10 community health agencies across Victoria will walk off the job for a 24-hour stop-work on Monday 4 February as they continue their attempts to negotiate a new enterprise bargaining agreement (EBA) with their employers.
More than two thirds of dentists and dental specialists working across the public sector have now signed on to the new agreement, leaving these agencies in the minority. The current agreement expired more than 18 months ago, and the dentists at these sites are frustrated with the lack of progress in the negotiations.
