Over the last 10 days, Professional Scientists Australia have spoken with over 150 South Australian Medical Scientists.
Over the last 10 days, Professional Scientists Australia have spoken with over 150 South Australian Medical Scientists about the new campaign Medical Science Matters, and the level of support has been great.
Medical Scientists from disciplines across Health came together at meetings, united by the need for change.
This call has come from all areas of the profession; Grant Funded Researchers, Clinical Scientists, Diagnostic Pathology Scientists and Pathologists. Medical Scientists agree that there is an imminent crisis, the impacts of which will be felt by professionals, patients and the community.
Medical Science Matters is about building a strong, long term future for Medical Science, and there are a number of steps we need to take.
Professional Scientists Australia members know that what is needed is respect, reward and recognition.
The very next challenge we face is upcoming Enterprise Bargaining in the SA Public Sector. In order to be heard more than we have ever been before, we need to build a strong, credible voice for Medical Scientists across Health.
That’s why we are inviting all SA Medical Scientists in the Public Sector to add their voice to our 2014 EBA Survey by March 24th. The results of this survey will contribute to our log of claims for bargaining, which Professional Scientists Australia members will have the opportunity to vote for and endorse.
