Olive branch extended.

Healthscope extended an olive branch yesterday afternoon, and we met with their negotiators trying to work through the key issues.
We have raised your key concerns again: 

  • Unacceptable workloads primarily caused by insufficient base rostering of staff
  • Lack of access to breaks
  • Increased casualisation of the workforce

We’ve demanded that they fix these issues by: 

  • Introducing an effective way to raise and resolve workload concerns
  • Making sure nurses have access to supernumerary training and educators
  • Appropriate precepting of grad nurses
  • Having the right mix of staff to make sure that the right skills are available when required

Healthscope have asked us to consider lifting some of our protected industrial action, particularly the ban on working overtime.

For more information about this or any other industrial matter, members should contact HACSUassist on 1300 880 032 or email or complete our online contact form
