On Friday, your bargaining team met with government officials to begin negotiations for the replacement AHP agreement. We’re looking for substantial reform for AHPs and our meeting was the first step on that mission.
The other unions are finalising their claims, so the meeting largely focused on scheduling regular meetings to ensure the process stays on track and on parameters for negotiations that we hope will lead to meaningful and productive negotiations from the outset. We also want those we’re meeting with to have the power to make decisions - there’s no point meeting with message-runners – so we raised that concern with the government’s bargaining representatives.
The next meeting is scheduled for 28 July, and we’ll keep you updated on progress. For more information or to get a copy of your claim please contact us.
