Staff meetings are a great place to raise issues

We raised concerns about workload and regular short-staffing with Yvonne after hearing concerns from a few Wynyard Care workers, and Yvonne said the issue had been addressed at a recent staff meeting and that she’s happy to have conversations about these issues.

She said staff meetings are a great place to bring up issues like this, but unfortunately staff often don’t attend or read the correspondence, so some staff may not always get to hear the plans and strategies that are going to be put in place to address issues like short staffing and workload.

Yvonne admitted it was often a struggle to find staff to replace those who call in sick or take leave due to availability of staff when they are called, but she said it’s something she is working on.

If short-staffing is becoming an issue, please contact Yvonne in the first instance and if you get no satisfaction then feel free to give HACSUassist a call to discuss further 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
