Watch Gerard Hayes’ message to members here:

This NSW Labor Government was elected on a platform of change. But we’re just seeing more of the same.

This is a government that has trashed the promises it made to health workers. The wages cap is still very much in place, workers are still forking over half of their personal tax savings through salary packaging, awards are still hopelessly out of date with no plan to update them, and there has been no progress on paramedic professional rates.

Last week, HSU members voted on a 6% pay offer plus 0.5% superannuation and immediate action on the other outstanding commitments.

Now, there are rumours that the government will be making a pay offer of a measly 3.5%, plus the 0.5% super increase.

What do you think of this offer? Have your say here:

Next Wednesday 31 May is Big Wednesday. HSU members all around the state will be taking action to show this government we mean business. Tell your workmates – it’s going to be huge!

Keep an eye out for texts and newsletters from the HSU with more info about taking action. It’s never been more important to keep in the loop with union activity. Let’s make this one count.
