We're meeting with them again in a few weeks

Since both Anglicare and Li-Ve’s workplace agreements are about to expire, we spoke to genU last week to find out their intentions about negotiating a new Tasmanian genU agreement. While they stayed non-committal, they did agree to talk again in a few weeks.

genU said they’re not in a position to commit or even indicate what they intend to do, but they’re happy to continue conversations.

We told them it’s very reasonable for Anglicare workers who’ve transferred and Li-Ve workers who will be transferring to want to know what their employer’s intentions are when it comes to the workplace agreement that determines everyone’s pay and working conditions. We’d expect that we should be able to move along with making a new agreement to protect your existing conditions and make improvements overall.

We made it clear that we expect to know genU’s intentions soon, so management have agreed to talk to the CEO and others and get back to us within 3 weeks.

While they’re doing that, we’ve let them know that we’ll be talking to workers about what you want your new agreement to look like. We really want to hear what you think, and we’re keen to get workers like you involved in the agreement-making process.

Please get in touch let us know your thoughts! You can call or email us or chat to your HACSU delegate or organiser when you see them around.

We’ll update you after the next time we speak to genU and let you know what the next steps are from there.

In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to get in contact through HACSUassist – and be sure to let us know if you’d like to get more involved.
