Industrial action – APEX union Psychologists

Industrial action by APEX union Psychologists began at 8am on Wednesday 31 July and will end at 8am on Tuesday 3 September.

During this period, Psychologists who are APEX union members and choose to take part in the industrial action, are not carrying out any overtime work, either paid or unpaid. This is not a full withdrawal of labour.

We have undertaken significant contingency planning for the APEX Psychologists' industrial action period to ensure that patient safety remains our priority.

What you need to know:

• Industrial action by APEX union Psychologists began at 8am on Wednesday 31 July and it will end at 8am on Tuesday 3 September.

• This is not a full withdrawal of labour.

• During this period, Psychologists who are APEX union members and choose industrial action are not carrying out any overtime work, either paid or unpaid.

• If you are a patient, please come to your scheduled appointment unless we have contacted you directly to say your appointment is being rescheduled.

• If you need our care, we are here. We expect any appointment rescheduling to be minimal.

We respect our Psychologists’ right to industrial action and know the decision to take industrial action is a very difficult decision for each individual to make.
