MNCLHD management has notified the HSU that workers attached to its Public Health Unit are being temporarily redeployed as Contact Tracers, on an “as needed” as part of its COVID-19 surge planning. Management advise they will be conducting appropriate training for the workers before deployment. You can read a copy of the correspondence at this link.
HSU members are encouraged to provide feedback via email to your Organiser [E-Mail not displayed]. Any concerns will be raised with management for a response.
If you know someone who hasn’t yet joined the HSU, tell them to take the plunge today. There’s never been a more important time for health workers to stand together. New members can join at www.hsu.asn.au/join or call 1300 478 679.
