Hold up, wait a minute…

You might have seen an email from Grace earlier this week about a management structure for the new OT/DSU unit at the Mersey.

We must admit this came as a bit of surprise. For months we’ve been told that we can’t progress staffing for the new combined unit at the Mersey because, basically, it is too early.

But now they want to lock in the management structure without first locking in how many staff there will be on the ground, what their jobs will be, or whether any of this will meet ACORN/ANZCA standards or Safe Staffing requirements.

They need to hold up, wait a minute and do this correctly. Not just rush it through.

We’ve told Anthony that we are in dispute until we can do this properly and with proper consultation – so you shouldn’t feel pressured to give any feedback by next Friday.

Any consultation will occur once everyone has more relevant information.

If you have any more questions in the meantime, give us a call via HACSUassist on 1300 880 032.

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
