Recently, the HSU was informed of NSW Health Pathology downgrading and reclassifying a Hospital Scientist position to a Technical Officer position within Microbiology at Gosford Hospital.
To members’ anger, this occurred without any consultation with the Union or our members. Members will also be aware that there are current proceedings before the NSW Industrial Relations Commission about the Ministry of Health’s proposed Award variations to similar positions.
The HSU has notified the employer of a dispute.
It’s vital that we hold the employer to account and ensure they follow the correct policies and procedures as laid out in the Award. If you have any similar concerns, make sure you contact the HSU via email [E-Mail not displayed] or call 1300 478 679.
