HSU members have campaigned long and hard for free parking for health workers. We firmly believe that if you work in a hospital, you shouldn’t have to pay to get to and from work safely.
Supporting health workers during this time is our main priority. During the height of a global pandemic, the last thing that our COVID heroes need is to pay for parking while on the front lines.
That is why, council by council, the HSU has been making representations on behalf of members for free on-street parking at their local hospitals. Recently, Canterbury Bankstown City Council agreed to extend the free untimed parking around Canterbury and Bankstown Hospitals indefinitely, to be reviewed once the COVID pandemic ends.
The HSU commends the Canterbury Bankstown Mayor Cr Khal Asfour and his Council for leading the way on extended untimed hospital parking, and we encourage other councils to take their lead.
Wins like these don’t just happen – union members make them happen. Know someone who isn’t yet an HSU member? Tell them to take the plunge today at www.hsu.asn.au/join or call 1300 478 679.
