Summary: Senior doctors and dentists in New Zealand are preparing for a strike after pay negotiations with Te Whatu Ora broke down. Te Whatu Ora wanted to cut their pay for the third year in a row, while the Association of Salaried Medical Specialists (ASMS) wanted their pay to match inflation. Over 80% of ASMS members voted to strike, with the strikes planned for September 5, 13, and 21. The doctors are concerned that ongoing pay cuts might cause more doctors to leave the country or not apply for jobs. The hope is to reach a fair settlement through negotiations and avoid the strikes.
