Negotiations approaching for new national Lifeblood EA

The HSU has been informed that Lifeblood intends to start negotiations on a new national Lifeblood Enterprise Agreement.

This Agreement will not cover employees in donor centres, production, or employees in technical or medical roles. Instead, it will cover management, specialist and national functions (including shared services roles).

Now is the time to make sure your colleagues are HSU members, so they can be represented at the bargaining table. We need to organise so that we can put your claims and ideas to the company, and report back to you with our ongoing progress. Our team of lawyers will be reviewing Lifeblood proposals and negotiating on your behalf.

Remind your workmates that HSU membership is $11.10 a week and is fully tax-deductible. As well as legal representation, there are many other benefits including free personal liability insurance, free journey insurance and discounts at many retailers.

If you would like to get involved in the bargaining process, please send an email to ian.sherwood@hsu.asn.au or call 0409 066 116 and we will be in touch. Don’t forget, we’re stronger when we stand together – new members can join online at www.hsu.asn.au/join or call 1300 478 679.
