Tuesday 13 Mar 2018
As you know, the union have initiated bargaining with the employer for a new Agreement to start with effect from 1 July 2018 and we are undertaking extensive consultation with members to build the Log of Claims. We have surveyed members and meetings are being conducted across metro hospital sites, at HSS and video conferences with our WACHS members – look out for your email invitation to attend a meeting at these sites.
We had a huge response to the survey - thank you for taking the time and effort to tell us about what matters to you. We continue to work through the significant number of comments and suggestions from members about what we should claim in the EBA. If you’d like to add to the feedback we have already gathered you can do that by talking to your representative, attending a union meeting, emailing or calling the union office.
The end of this process is the EBA Conference to be held at the Perth Zoo on 12 April where your Workplace Representatives will review and finalise our claims.
We know that this will likely be a financially tight round, the government’s bargaining position is as most members will know a flat $1,000 per annum for full timers, pro rata for part timers, plus any other changes need to be revenue neutral. You told us in the survey that secure employment, flexible work arrangements and workload management are all significant issues and we have developed claims aimed at addressing those issues. There is still plenty of opportunity to tell us your ideas on what you need to make your work life.
If you don’t have a Representative in your area, please consider nominating (or tell us who you think would make a great Rep!).
