It's time to take action

Despite the clear results of three comprehensive democratic votes, Uniting AgeWell’s Melbourne and Sydney-based management simply don’t get it and won’t listen to you.

Last week we asked UAW again to come back to the negotiating table and drop their attempts to reduce your wages and conditions. Guess what we have heard? Crickets. So we now have been left with no option but to step it up and take action, including moving towards a protected industrial action ballot.

We’ll be holding a delegate activist meeting next Thursday (9 February) to plan our next steps. We need at least two representatives from every worksite to be part of this ongoing committee to ensure the plan has input from all sites.

If you want to get involved in this committee, please call HACSUassist on 1300 880 032.

We’ll update you following this meeting, and we will give you more info about the upcoming protected industrial action ballot.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

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
