Who are STONZ?

STONZ is a union representing and advocating for all junior doctors. Yes, it’s true that our roots began with Surgical Trainees, but we have grown to represent all junior doctors, no matter what their specialty. 

STONZ is a union representing and advocating for all junior doctors, no matter their specialty. STONZ provides advocacy for any doctor who wants to manage their career and training pathway effectively. We don’t believe in a one size fits all approach, so if you’re considering a specialist career, you need a union that advocates with specialties in mind.

At STONZ we believe that collaboration is key, that’s why we work closely with all parties to find solutions that work for and suit all sides. So, if you’re looking for a union that offers another perspective, consider joining the STONZ team today.  

Representing all Junior Doctors

Whether you’re just starting out as a TI or your training is well underway as a Registrar, it's good to have options so you can make choices that work for you and your career. 

STONZ was established at a time when there weren’t enough options available to suit the different levels and specialties. To address this gap, a small group of RMOs established a union offering a fresh perspective which has grown to become a strong community providing a voice for a broad mix of doctors across Aotearoa.

At STONZ we understand that there is more than one pathway to get to where you want to be in your career. That’s why we would be privileged to be part of your journey and to be part of the network that will support you not just at the start, but also well into the future, wherever this takes you.


In order to progress your career, good training opportunities are essential.
Not all Collective Agreements are created equal. That’s why STONZ negotiated an agreement that aims to protect training, allowing you to complete your training without compromise to yourself or your patients.  


You don’t always have a clear idea of where you want to end up when you’re starting out in your career.
You therefore want to align with a union that is going to give you support now and provide you with the flexibility to develop your career going forward. STONZ can help you take your career to the next level.    


Being part of a union means you gain a collective voice to improve things like remuneration, training and working conditions for all.
The more we continue to grow, the more voices we represent and the more we can change. If you’re looking for a fresh take on RMO support, become part of STONZ today.
