Negotiations continue... vote NO!

We had a meeting with Menarock last week to continue bargaining for the nurse’s agreement, and they're proposing to put the agreement out to vote at the end of the month.
We strongly recommend members vote NO for 4 reasons: 

  1. Poor wage increase of 1.8% in the first year and the Fair Work increase in the second and third years
  2. Redundancies that will disadvantage new employees (grandfathering of the redundancy clause)
  3. Loss of paid parental leave
  4. Removal of the penalty on changing a member's roster without any notice

Menarock had proposed to remove paid meal breaks for day workers working 6am to 6pm but have now agreed to reverse.

It would be crazy to accept this offer with the pitiful wage offer and the loss of conditions members have had for years, so we recommend voting NO!
