STONZ is a union representing and advocating for all junior doctors.

We were formed by a group of surgical trainees, but very quickly started to gain momentum and attract junior doctors from other specialties, also looking for an alternative.

It is our mission to build a collaborative community where all junior doctors are given the opportunity to complete their training without boundaries or limitation.

What we do

Our aim is to negotiate a Multi Employment Collective Agreement (MECA) that offers best possible benefits to support your training, your career and your work life balance.

We are here to advocate for our members and support you with guidance and advice about work-related issues. 

Who we are

STONZ is a not for profit organisation lead by Junior Doctors. 

EXECUTIVE – Our Executive team is compromised of junior doctors who are passionate about building a strong and representative community voice.

SUPPORT TEAM – Our support team are the ones who keep the wheels moving and who keep the daily operations of our organisation ticking over. The support team are your first point of contact for any help and advice you need.

DELEGATES – We have delegates in nearly all of New Zealand hospitals. Our union representatives located within your DHB are here to offer advice and support so don’t hesitate to reach out. We’d also love to hear from anyone who is interested in becoming a delegate.

What we stand for

  • We advocate inclusion so that all junior doctors have an opportunity and a voice when it comes to shaping our MECA.
  • We promote collaboration working closely with all parties with the aim to create outcomes and solutions that benefit and work for everyone.
  • We put training at the heart of our MECA to ensure that all junior doctors have the opportunity to develop their skills without compromise or limitation.
  • We strive to be progressive by looking at the long-term consequences and impact of every recommendation and decision that we make.
