Free Parking for Health Workers

We firmly believe that if you work in a hospital you shouldn't have to pay to get to and from work safely.

Finally, after a long and hard fought campaign by HSU members, the Minister for Health announced free hospital parking for all NSW health workers throughout COVID-19.

This is an enormous win for all health workers and goes some of the way in recognising the invaluable work HSU members do on the frontlines. 

While the NSW Government has oversight of hospital parking, local government controls on-street parking, including time limits.

The following councils have committed not to penalise health care workers for on-street parking as they make their way to and from work. Is yours on the list?

✅ Mid Coast Council
✅ Campbelltown Council
✅ Inner West Council
✅ Bega Shire Council
✅ Wollongong City Council
✅ Tweed Shire Council
✅ Liverpool City Council
✅ Canterbury Bankstown City Council
✅ Penrith City Council
✅ Sydney City Council
✅ Maitland City Council
✅ Goulburn Council
✅ Lismore City Council
✅ Georges River Council
✅ Ku-ring-gai Council
✅ Blacktown City Council
✅ Canada Bay Council
✅ Blue Mountains Council
✅ Sutherland Shire Council
