DHB offer for radiographers expected today

District Health Boards (DHBs) will today officially tender an offer in a bid to end a long-running contract dispute with radiographers.

The offer will be sent to radiographers' union Apex via email later today, DHB senior communications advisor Sharon Cuzens said.

Apex, representing about 1000 medical radiation technicians (MRTs), yesterday agreed to temporarily stop industrial action pending the offer.

The two parties have been negotiating a new contract for months.

Apex spokeswoman Bernadette Gourley told NZPA the industrial action was lifted as a goodwill gesture.

"The DHBs would not issue an offer formally until we lifted the strike action," she said.

Ms Gourley said members would be consulted as soon as possible once the offer was received.
