Ballina: Vote for your bargaining committee representative!

Three union members from Ballina Hospital have nominated to be on the Award Reform State Bargaining Committee. Ballina Hospital is entitled to one representative, so you are invited to vote for who you would like as your bargaining representative. Here are your candidates:

  • Kim Hews is an Administration Officer at Ballina Hospital. Kim wants staff to be recognised for the work that they perform and the skills, experience and health specific knowledge that they bring to the health service.
  • Kylie Davis works in Drug and Alcohol and Nursing Administration Ballina. Kylie would like to see the career break scheme added to the Award and more flexibility to work from home or from different sites.
  • Maria Marshall is a Hospital Assistant working in Food Services and Domestic services. Maria wants to see suitable working conditions and safety in the workplace (including mental health). Maria wants a clear classification structure that will ensure employees only do appropriate work within their classification.

Please submit your vote here: Voting will close at 5pm on Wednesday 20 December.

Bargaining representatives will:

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