Aurora Community Care Update

Dear Member,

All HSU members are invited to attend a Zoom meeting on Thursday 11 April at 6:30pm, to discuss the proposed transfer from Aurora to NovaCare or MSS. There will also be an opportunity to discuss any other workplace issues members wish to raise.

Members can join the meeting via this link: or by calling (02) 8015 6011 and entering Meeting ID: 898 3541 4206

Yesterday, we spoke with Aurora Commercial Manager Elise Roulstone, who confirmed that Aurora will be talking to staff members next week and seeking members’ preferences about transferring to the new provider or not.

Aurora have said that any staff who transfer would do so on their current pay and conditions. This is important, as we want to make sure that nobody is adversely affected by the transfer.

Further, Aurora also said that staff would not be forced to go to the new employer if they didn’t want to. Members should feel comfortable to clearly express their preference to Aurora at the meetings to be held next week, and we will do our best to ensure that HSU members get the outcome they want.

HSU Industrial Services Officers in our Member Service Division are available to provide union members with advice about their individual circumstances, if anyone wishes. MSD staff can also attend the upcoming meetings alongside HSU members in order to support and advise them.

Members can contact the MSD by calling 1300 478 679 if they would like to discuss their personal circumstances in more detail.

If your colleagues are not yet HSU members, please encourage them to join the union so that they can attend the Zoom meeting next week. New members can join online at or by calling 1300 478 679.

We look forward to seeing you online next Thursday.
