As members would be aware, Tenterfield Care have proposed major workplace changes in cleaning and laundry. Your local HSU Organiser Kirk Rostock attended a briefing session on Thursday 5th November. The proposed starting date of the rosters is 7th December with a review date of the 14th of December, though these haven’t been provided as yet.
When we do get a copy of the proposed roster, it’s important that members raise any concerns they may have prior to its introduction. Some members have already been in touch with concerns around safety and availability. Members are encouraged to approach management on the first instance if they have any concerns. Should you feel you need support when you meet with management, please contact Kirk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are now in the consultation period, and management have a responsibility under your enterprise agreement to help mitigate any adverse effects of major workplace change. If you hold a meeting with management and you’re unhappy with the outcome, contact your local organiser via the above email and include as much detail as possible. In the meantime, we will be writing to Tenterfield Care to seek copies of current and proposed rosters.
If you know someone who isn’t a member, forward them this email. Workplace change is never easy, and it helps to have advice and support on hand. New members can join at www.hsu.asn.au/join or call 1300 478 679.
