Your HACSU bargaining team met with I-MED this week to finally kick off discussions around your new agreement. We strongly voiced your concerns about workload and cost of living pressures and your need for a fair pay rise and increased sick leave.
While I-MED said they could not commit to agreeing to any of our claims at the meeting, the discussions were largely positive.
One of our concerns is that I-MED seemed to suggest they want to make changes to your agreement which would make it easier for them to change your roster and reduce your redundancy entitlements. We’re keeping a close eye on this and will wait for more info before making any judgments.
HACSU’s got your back, always. We’re here to protect your conditions, and as negotiations keep going, we’ll be right there holding I-MED to account to give you the deal you deserve.
We’ll be around over the next few weeks to keep you informed. Stay tuned, and don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns.
