Status quo remains

We met with the Fair Work Commission and Southern Cross Care again yesterday to discuss SCC’s proposed cuts in servery hours at Fairway Rise, Sandown Apartments, Guilford Young Grove and Rosary Gardens.

The FWC have asked HACSU to provide SCC with more details about site-specific issues. We are currently doing this and will meet with SCC before the next FWC hearing. In the meantime, SCC can't change your roster, and the status quo remains until this dispute is resolved.

Again, it’s disappointing that SCC have not changed their position and are ignoring the safety of residents and staff. We all know cutting more hours will worsen your workloads and compromise residents’ care.

We have another FWC hearing scheduled for Tuesday 8 February and we'll update you after the meeting. If you have any questions, please call 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 assist@hacsu.org.au or complete our online contact form
