We're aware that some Anglicare members may recently have received a text message that says something along the lines of:
"Please confirm your consent for your contracted hours to be reduced to xyz hours per fortnight.Reply Y or N – Thanks Anglicare HR"
Our advice is do not reply!
Asking staff to reduce their permanent hours via a text message is just not on, and anyone who got one of these messages should get in touch with us asap.
We’ve raised this with Anglicare’s Senior Industrial Relations Coordinator to get to the bottom of what’s going on and will update members once we know more.
