Award Reform: Time to elect your bargaining representatives at Westmead

The process of Award reform has now well and truly begun, with HSU members taking a seat at the table with government to determine the changes you want to see in your Awards. These are changes that will affect everyone working in NSW Health – so it’s vital that we get them right.

It is important to hear from all classifications, it’s important that everyone is represented. Expressions of interest are now being sought for members of the statewide Award bargaining committee.

As the largest HSU worksite, Westmead Hospital has 7 delegates to elect to the state-wide committee that will negotiate the new conditions of employment award. Nominations will be open from the floor of the meeting as well as via this link if you can’t make it:

This committee will include approximately 150 HSU members from across NSW. Members of this committee will:

  • Attend state-wide committee meetings to discuss the negotiations and state-wide campaign strategy.
  • Report back to HSU members their worksite on how negotiations are going.
  • 15 members of the state-wide bargaining committee will form the negotiation team.

Think you have what it takes? Come along to your local meeting and nominate here.
