Today your HSU Bargaining Team met with RIDBC management and their lawyers to commence negotiations on your new Enterprise Agreement.
Representing members were:
Ana Radis - Occupational Therapist/Coordinator
Anna McMaster Harcourt - Speech Pathologist
Emma Facey - Speech Pathologist
Jacqui Treseder - Centre Based Coordinator/Administration
Katherine Phelan - Speech Pathologist
Karen Atkinson - Speech Pathologist
Kim Ter-Horst - Senior Audiologist
Maree McTaggart - Audiologist
Nick Baulderstone - Audiologist
Samantha Stevens - Audiologist
They are prepared, committed and ready to stand up for a fair Enterprise Agreement at RIDBC.
The team have gotten together this week and have drafted and endorsed an initial Log of Claims, which was communicated to management yesterday.
A Log of Claims is a document that outlines the union's position during negotiations. This is drafted based on consultation with our membership during workplace visits, Zoom meetings and through our online survey. You can read our endorsed initial Log of Claims at this link.
RIDBC proposed at yesterday's meeting that they intend to hold an additional Bargaining meeting later in December involving all unions and parties before we reconvene next year.
We will continue to keep you updated throughout the process. If you have any questions or feedback, please contact your local HSU representative or email your HSU Organiser Thomas Gao via firstname.lastname@example.org or Industrial Officer Ed Yap via email@example.com.
We are stronger together!
If you know of a colleague who isn't yet a union member, forward them this email and encourage them to join their union. We are most effective when we are united and working together. New members can join the union online at www.hsu.asn.au/join or call 1300 478 679.
