We wrote to Mary Ogilvy some weeks back about you having to wait for the CEO to return from personal leave before any annual leave would be approved.
This is totally unacceptable. Your agreement clearly states that you should receive a response within two weeks for your annual leave application rather than having to wait until who knows when.
Disappointingly, your employer did not respond to our letter, so we've lodged an application with the Fair Work Commission and expect to hear back from them with a hearing date - we'll update you once we've met with them.
If you have any questions in the meantime, you can contact HACSUassist on 1300 880 032.
If any of your colleagues aren't yet HACSU members, encourage them to join the biggest union for aged care workers in Tasmania.
