Laverty HSU members: updates about initial bargaining

We have submitted our HSU Log of Claims to Laverty for negotiations. The claims were approved by over 96% of respondents among our membership.

However, Laverty’s reaction to our claims has not been wholly positive – particularly on our demand for an annual wage increase of 8.5% or above, in view of the rising cost of living.

This means we need to ramp up our participation as HSU members if we are to make meaningful progress at the table. We need you!

For more updates on this initial bargaining session, and to help plan the road ahead, please join our next meeting open to all Laverty HSU members:

Date: This Wednesday 3 August
Time: From 7pm

Our negotiations will be successful only if we continue speaking to our colleagues and building our power! If you have workmates who aren’t members yet, tell them to join today and have their say. New members can join at or call 1300 478 679.
