ASMOF – the Doctors Union, represents the interests of medical practitioners, from interns to senior staff specialists, working in the public and non-government health systems in NSW.
What’s a union?
A union is simply a group of workers who collectively use their strength and pool their resources to give people a voice in the workplace and fight for fair pay and conditions.
Because ASMOF is a union it has the legal right to enforce and improve your employment conditions, ensure you get the correct pay and advocate on your behalf if you ever have an issue in the workplace.
ASMOF also has a central role in overseeing employment conditions generally, with formal input into local, regional and state-wide decisions.
ASMOF is run by doctors for doctors.
Our governing body brings in doctors at all levels of the health system – from interns to staff specialists.
ASMOF has a dedicated committee of doctors in training, ensuring your particular interests are heard and respected.
Our staff are industrial specialists who are experienced in working within the health system.
