After concerns about communication and workplace issues were raised by HSU members and local HSU Organiser Karen Wiles, Bethany management have agreed to the formation of a Staff Consultative Committee (SCC).
The SCC will be made up from representatives from all work streams including, but not limited to: carers, kitchen, and cleaning, as well as representatives from the nurses’ union and management. The committee will meet on work time to discuss issues and solutions to some of the current challenges at Bethany. This a great forum to work with management to share information, raise concerns and get results. The SCC will not replace the existing staff meetings but will be more focused and collaborative.
I want to thank those members who initially raised concerns on behalf of the entire Bethany workforce. If you are interested in being involved in the SCC, or would like more information, please contact Karen on 0408 164 519 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, you are all working incredibly hard during these difficult times. On behalf of the HSU community, thank you.
