(a) The terms of the pilot roster shall be agreed in writing between IRT and the relevant Union, nominated employee representative, consultative team or Employees working in a particular Care Centre/Service. Provided that the Employees and any representative of the Employees shall not unreasonably refuse to agree to, or unreasonably delay in responding to a Pilot Roster Project proposed by IRT.
This means you have a say and agreement must be reached in writing before any change can be implemented.
Your local HSU organiser Meri Bosevski has been speaking to IRT staff about the proposal and the pros and cons of working these shifts. Overall, the general consensus has been that staff were already exhausted and were concerned that 12-hour shifts could be unsustainable.
To formalise the HSU’s response to IRT, we are asking members to send your views about the implementation of 12-hour shifts for a 3-month period to [E-Mail not displayed]. Are you in favour of the idea, or against it? Why?
