Union Win: Ramsay Health Care Commits to Special COVID Leave. St John Of God to follow.

Thursday 17 Feb 2022

Union advocacy and pressure has meant that this week Ramsay Health Care announced a commitment to 20 days COVID Special Leave for its WA employees. This is a great win for these Members.
  • Ramsay employees may be granted up to 20 days COVID Special Leave (this includes regular and systematic casual employees with 12 months service) 
     
  • COVID Special Leave is paid at the employee’s ordinary base rate for rostered ordinary hours - penalties and loadings do not apply.

We have received further advice from St John of God Health Care that they are developing a proposal regarding COVID leave which will be distributed in the coming days. It is anticipated that St John of God Health Care will match the commitments of the other major employers.

HSUWA continues to advocate for this leave to be offered to all health workers across the private sector, with a focus on private clinics and pathology.
