While you’ve kicked off the “quietest time of the year” more hectic than ever and working hard to hold down the fort, we do have some good news for you!
Your new Public Sector Unions Wages Agreement has been registered and your wage increases and backpay will soon be in your pockets.
You can find a registered copy in your emails.
We have been told by the various departments that you’ll start pocketing your wage increase from the 25 January pay and that your backpay will be processed throughout February.
We’re also seeking urgent meetings with Health to talk about how we are going to work through the important non-agreement matters (like the review of HSOs) and what the process will be.
We were able to secure all the wins in this agreement because you stuck together and told that it’s time for real change. You should never forget that it was union members’ bravery and resolute determination to look out for your fellow workers that won the day.
We’re still fighting for your workmates who are ambulance workers, allied health professionals and radiation therapists as we continue negotiations for these agreements – so please offer any support you can!
We’ll be out and about everywhere, so if you’d like a visit to your workplace or you have any other issues you’d like to chat about, please contact us on 1300 880 032 or email@example.com
