We met with SCC management today and raised all the issues staff are having in the servery. We know they've been doing extra duties that aren’t on the current duty list, and we’ve made it clear to SCC that they need to reinstate positions and rostered hours to ensure servery staff have a reasonable workload.
We had a hearing at the Fair Work Commission earlier this year when SCC slashed servery hours. At that time, SCC gave commitments to HACSU and the Commissioner that they would set up focus groups to discuss how things are going.
Of course, this has never happened, and since then, workers have had numerous extra duties added to their current workload, making it impossible to get everything done in the time allowed.
We tabled a document with a list of all the extra duties servery staff have been required to carry out at today’s meeting. SCC said they’ll discuss these and respond to us within a week.
We'll update you once we have a response. If you have any questions, you can contact us via HACSUassist on 1300 880 032.
