Membership is FREE for trainee interns

When it comes to your career, there’s more than one pathway. 

We understand that transitioning from Trainee Intern to House Officer can be a huge change, so being part of a network that will support you and your career not only now, but well into the future is invaluable. The choice you make now will ultimately shape your future, so it’s important to consider all of your options from the start.  

By choosing STONZ today, you will be making a choice that will help you futureproof your career.  

Consider all your options

Being part of a union means you gain a collective voice in shaping many important factors that could impact your career. 

Unions are key for pushing continued improvements to things like remuneration, training and working conditions. By joining STONZ or any other union, you will be agreeing to the terms and conditions of their MECA (Multi Employment Collective Agreement) for its duration. This means that you will be unable to change unions until their associated MECA expires, or you change DHBs. That’s why its important to consider all of the available options at the start to ensure you choose a union that’s going to support you for the long term.

To help you make an informed decision about your future we’ve put together this page of useful resources to help answer any questions you may have. If you can’t find the answer, don’t hesitate to get in touch or give us a call. You do not need to be a member to ask us questions. We understand this is a difficult decision and we’re here to help if you need us.
