A group of health workers from Fiona Stanley Hospital stand together at a union rally holding flags and purple signs.


HSUWA Members, including Allied Health Professionals, Technicians, Assistants and Clerks
from Fiona Stanley Hospital, will congregate to Stand Up! for better pay and conditions at a
Mass Member Meeting on Wednesday, 1 May 2024.

The meeting comes as the State Government and Department of Health have failed to present an
Offer to the largest public sector health workforce in Western Australia, after the union presented
Member claims over seven months ago.

HSUWA Members are claiming pay increases of 7% in the first year and 5% in the second year, in
addition to claims that provide rewarding career pathways for Allied Health Professionals and
Anaesthetic Technicians, safer working hours and conditions.

Quotes attributable to HSUWA Secretary Naomi McCrae:

“Our Members gave a deadline of 30 April to receive a first Offer from the Department after preparing
their well-considered and reasonable claims over seven months ago. They are still waiting.”

“The Allied Health, the technical and the administrative workforce together make up the largest in
public health in WA, and they deserve to be recognised for the valuable work they do for the WA
community – that’s 7% in the first year and 5% in the second year of their Agreement.”

“Allied Health Professionals are seeking commitments to reform antiquated and rigid career
pathways, to provide a career path to specialised areas of health like pharmacy, medical science and
medical imaging.”

“This future workforce planning is critical to the retention and attraction of experienced health
professionals and the long-term sustainability of our health system. The State Government can’t kick
the can down the road any longer.”

HSUWA is a growing Union of thousands of trusted and respected health professionals who
provide critical clinical, administrative, and technical expertise across WA’s public and
private health services. Members work across all of Allied Health, Pharmacy, Pathology and
Medical Imaging as well as Health Administration. You can read more about the HSUWA here.
