If you want to be represented by the union at an individual consultation meeting, contact your Organiser immediately on 0458 012 322 or [E-Mail not displayed].

It is important for you to know your rights at work during major workplace change. Below are some points to assist with understanding your rights. Your Union is here to help you stand up for your rights.

You have the right to;

  1. Be consulted about the change. Consultation includes time to consider the change, to raise concerns, and to have those concerns properly addressed.
  2. Say no. Contracted hours cannot be cut without your approval. Cuts to jobs can occur, but only with a redundancy or redeployment to a comparable position.
  3. Representation. Ensure you are represented by the HSU when discussing major workplace change.
  4. Request any changes to your job be provided in writing and time to consider your response. Don’t feel rushed. Major changes to your job can have lasting impacts for you and your family.
  5. Join the HSU! Only HSU members get representation and advice to stand up for their rights and protect their job. Encourage your workmates to join our Union today. Join now online or phone 1300 478 679
