Bargaining is underway at Warrigal!

Warrigal have commenced negotiations for a new Support Services Agreement. This means that HSU members covered by that agreement can campaign for wage increases and improve working conditions.

The Support Services Agreement is different to the Warrigal and NSW Nurses and Midwives’ Association, Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation NSW Branch, Health Services Union NSW/ACT/QLD Branch and the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation – Australian Capital Territory Branch Enterprise Agreement 2022 which was negotiated last year. See below for more information.

Who is covered by the Warrigal Support Services Enterprise Agreement?

Warrigal and the HSU recently negotiated an Enterprise Agreement that covered workers conducting care, or workers in the kitchen and laundry.

The Warrigal Support Services Enterprise Agreement is being negotiated to cover other Warrigal roles including:

  • Customer Service Officer
  • Property Services Employee
  • Roster Support Officer
  • Customer Relations Officer 

What’s next and how do I get involved?

The first step is for affected HSU members to determine our claims and priorities for the new enterprise agreement. Follow this link to a survey to contribute to the Log of Claims.

HSU members’ claims will provide the basis for ongoing negotiations. If you have questions about this process or want to get involved in the Bargaining Team, you can contact your local Delegate or Organiser.
