Newcastle Linen Service: Clarification re uniform items

Recently, HSU members approached your Sub Branch to request information about what they could order as part of their uniform renewal. In particular, members were seeking clarification around what outerwear items are available to order. Members advised the Sub Branch that when they put in orders for vests, knitted jumpers etc., they were advised the only outerwear item available for order was the two tone Hi-Vis jacket.

Once this was raised with your HSU Organiser, we approached management to seek clarification on behalf of members. Today, the HSU received a response from HealthShare to advise that staff are able to order under the Fair Wear and Tear policy, not only the Hi-Vis jacket but also other items that can be found within the ordering system.

You can read the email correspondence between the HSU and HealthShare at this link.

If you know someone who hasn’t yet joined the HSU, encourage them to take the plunge today at or call 1300 478 679. We are stronger together.
