IBIS Care restart negotiations for a new agreement!

Ibis Care have recommenced negotiations to replace your expired Enterprise Agreement. This comes after your employer commenced bargaining in late 2022, but then put negotiations on hold.

Now, negotiations will shortly commence for a new agreement which will cover:

  • Ibis Care Blakehurst
  • Ibis Care Miranda
  • Ferndale Gardens
  • Huntingdon Gardens 

What is an Enterprise Agreement, and what is bargaining?

Your enterprise agreement sets out your pay and conditions at work. It governs all your entitlements, including access to leave, your rostering arrangements, when Ibis Care must consult with you, and of course your rates of pay / any pay increases!

If you’re an HSU member, you’ll be represented by the HSU bargaining team. Your HSU bargaining team is made up of HSU members who work at IBIS and is supported by the union’s industrial officers.

If you’re not an HSU member yet, join now to support our campaign for better pay and conditions at IBIS Care.

HSU members tabled a Log of Claims earlier in this process, which is a list of improvement for wages and conditions in a new EA. A long time has passed since then and Ibis has since acquired two facilities, so a fresh approach will be taken.

Click here to have your say on top priorities for the new agreement!

At our annual conference last year, HSU delegates from across NSW, ACT and QLD set key priorities for the Aged Care sector. These priorities focus on:

  1. Fair Pay At Work
  2. A More Democratic Workplace
  3. A Safer Workplace
  4. Supporting Career Development

View the full sector priorities here.

These priorities, along with your priorities from the survey, will form our HSU Log of Claims.

All HSU members will be updated as the negotiations progress. If your colleagues are not yet HSU members, encourage them to join today at www.hsu.asn.au/join and have their say in the union log of claims.
