It’s a ‘No’ for the St Catherine’s Enterprise Agreement!
Following the strong reaction from HSU members to questionable practices in the first paper ballot, St Catherine’s management agreed to conduct a new electronic vote to gauge support for the enterprise agreement.
The results of that vote are in and a majority of respondents voted ‘No’ to the proposed enterprise agreement.
This is a great result and comes directly from HSU members standing strong and united in our demand for a better enterprise agreement.
It means that your current enterprise agreement will remain in place and that bargaining for a new enterprise agreement will continue.
The HSU will continue to advocate for an better EA offer, including:
Improved pay increases for all staff
Strong anti-bullying provisions included the EA
Better arrangements to support fair workload management
We have written to St Catherine’s management requesting a meeting to continue the negotiations.
Now more than ever, we need members to be strong and united, to help push for a better outcome. If your colleagues are not yet HSU members, they can join online at www.hsu.asn.au/join today.
We will keep HSU members up to date as things progress.
