We need details on NWRH roster & pay issues

After hearing about the issues with roster changes being made without agreement or notice, and the continual pay mistakes going uncorrected until the next pay run, HACSU's Troy Baker got in touch with Kate MacDonald to get to the bottom of it.

Unsurprisingly, Kate claimed to be unaware of the issues, and said she only has knowledge of one or two occasions of this occurring caused through absenteeism, and said that if we want her to investigate further, she needs details of occasions when mistakes had been made.

This is where you come in, as we need you to give us examples (payslips, rosters, etc) in order to progress the dispute.

There are clear obligations around the altering of rosters and payments of outstanding wages that need to be followed here and we need to show Kate if they aren’t being followed. You can provide us with examples anonymously.

Any evidence of examples can be emailed to assist@hacsu.org.au, subject: Att T Baker

If you don’t have the means to scan and email it, call us on 1300 880 032 to arrange for it to be picked up.

From what we hear since we raised this issue there have been fewer problems, but we still need to get to the bottom of it.

If we want these practices to stop, we all need to band together.

On another note, we’re currently awaiting updated advice on the impact of the new social distancing measures announced yesterday on cafeterias at Tasmanian hospitals. We’ll keep you in the loop as things develop.

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
