In response to key master – I feel that if this Union is going to make things happen then you will need large numbers behind it – locums alone are not enough to make real change happen.
I appreciate resources may be limited but how much would a more inclusive name cost.
I don’t understand the point about employed optoms contract differences – the same is true for locums when they work for different companies.
The issues that you are trying to address affect employed optoms as well. Why not have them inside this union? The more members this union has then the greater it’s leverage will be.
