As per the STONZ Collective, there are several clauses that are closely monitored for compliance, but often what we hear from members does not always reflect the data that is being produced from Te Whatu Ora.
How can you help?
We are seeking your help to identify patterns and trends to ensure we are doing the most we can to support our members. If you have experienced a breach, we ask you to complete the below form. STONZ would like to keep a record of any breaches reported directly from RMOs, so we are able to monitor and escalate where these are happening frequently. The purpose of this is to help identify both systematic issues and common themes and ensure steps are being taken to address the issues or discuss remediation actions with the district.
What is considered a ‘Breach’?
There are many examples of where breaches occur, however, we are trying to collect data more specifically around late publication of rosters and where hours of work have been exceeded at this time. Please report the below breaches when they occur:
Late Publication of Rosters: Rosters (for non-relief positions) must be published with 28-days’ notice. Ideally, rosters are also published for the entire run but where this isn't possible, they should be published for a minimum of 3 months. Once published a roster cannot be changed without the agreement of those taking part in the roster.
Weekly on-duty hours limits (services other than EDs and ICUs): RMOs should not be rostered to work more than 72 hours in any consecutive seven days. RMOs should not be required to work in excess of 140 hours in a period of 14 consecutive days.
No 8 hours break.
There are many other examples that would also be considered a breach – you are welcome to report these below, however for urgent queries and support please email the team directly via email@example.com.
Thank you for your continued support and assistance.
