Today we met with MCT General Manager of Operations to talk about the issues of bullying, short staffing and lodging an application with Fair Work to stop bullying.
When discussing the bullying behaviour of management, we were asked to give more details including workers’ names. We refused to do so as we know many staff are feeling intimidated, and we won’t put you in the line of fire.
We talked about short staffing at length. MCT said they are currently recruiting more staff, employing agency staff to cover RN, EN, ECA and catering. They’re also reviewing the master roster and expect to complete the review by late January.
MCT have committed to:
We were very clear with MCT that if the bullying behaviour does not cease, we are ready to lodge the bullying application. So, if you experience any form of bullying from now on, please document who, what was said and if there are any witnesses and contact us.
If you have any questions, you can contact HACSUassist on 1300 880032 or email@example.com
