Industrial action by lab workers from APEX - Medical Laboratory Workers Union

Lab workers from APEX - Medical Laboratory Workers Union are taking part in industrial action from 12:01am Monday 10 February to 11.59pm Tuesday 5 May. This does not involve a full withdrawal of labour.

During this period, participating lab workers will not be delivering training to other employees, except when it's part of recognised tertiary qualifications. We expect there will be minimal impact to our services.

We want to assure you that laboratory testing services will still be available throughout the period of industrial action.    

What you need to know:

  • Some lab workers are taking part in industrial action from Monday 10 February to Tuesday 5 May.

  • We expect there will be minimal impact to our services and laboratory testing will be available throughout this period.

  • Our message to all those who access our services is that your safety and wellbeing is our top priority. If you need our care, we are here. 

We respect our Medical Laboratory Workers’ right to take industrial action and know the decision whether to take action or work is a very difficult decision to make.
