On 13 September 2018, the Full Bench of the Fair Work Commission issued a decision with a draft Determination about your pay and conditions. This is a big win for all Dorevitch employees. Finally, you get a Fair Bloody Go!

Together, you did it!

As you know, the fight for fairer pay and conditions has not been easy.

When 89 of our Dorevitch members were locked out and all hope seemed lost, you all stuck together. You helped and supported each other, you had each other’s backs – you gave your time, energy and spirit. You showed no fear in the face of injustice. You stayed the course and showed what unionism is all about.

Make no mistake, you won this. We congratulate and thank all 605 of you for your sacrifice, courage and determination. After 11 years, time was up for Dorevitch Pathology.

I am so proud to be a member of this union alongside you.

Yours in admiration,

Diana Signature
