The HSU has been advised that the Mater Private Hospital North Sydney is requiring some of its employees to get vaccinated for COVID-19 in their own time.
The HSU has written to the Mater demanding that any worker who is directed to obtain a COVID-19 vaccination be given paid time off work in order to do so.
Management of the Hospital has replied advising that employees have been provided with time during working hours to obtain the vaccination.
If you are a worker who has been directed to get a COVID-19 vaccination, and you have not been given paid time off work or pay for your time in order to do this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief explanation of what occurred in your case.
If you know someone who isn’t yet an HSU member, encourage them to take the plunge today at www.hsu.asn.au/join or call 1300 478 679. We are stronger together.
