MNCLHD: Proposed roster changes, Macksville Hospital operating theatres

The HSU has received notification from Mid North Coast Local Health District to advise of a proposed change to rosters in Macksville Hospital operating theatres. Management is proposing to increase shift lengths from eight (8) hours to ten (10) hours, as well as altering shift start times from 0700 to 0730. This proposal is to be implemented from 4 October 2021. You can view a copy of the correspondence at this link.

The HSU is seeking feedback from you regarding these proposed changes. Please email your HSU Organiser via [E-Mail not displayed] with any concerns you may have by Friday 3 September 2021. Your responses will be collated and forwarded to MNCLHD management for their response. If issues are raised that demonstrate a negative impact on affected workers, the HSU will call for a Union-Specific Consultative Committee (USCC) to be formed.

If you know someone who is affected by these changes, but not yet a member of the Union, tell them to get on board and have their say. New members can join at or call 1300 478 679.
