Northcott Roster Review: Know Your Rights

We are currently in discussions with Northcott about their roster review, but it is vital that members are informed about their rights and are not misinformed or coerced into changing their contracted hours.

All HSU members have clear rights throughout this process. You have the right to:

  • Say no – Your contracted hours cannot be cut without your approval!
  • Be notified in writing about the change and how it may impact you.
  • Be given time to consider any proposed changes.
  • Ask questions or raise concerns, including refusing the change and/or offering alternative suggestions.
  • Be represented by the HSU at any meeting.

It is important that all union members understand their rights. HSU members should not sign any documents unless they have properly considered the offer and agree to the proposal.

All HSU members are encouraged to get assistance to check any proposed changes to contracts.

If you have any concerns or feedback about the change, please contact HSU Organiser Emmett Gray on 0499 919 355 or at [E-Mail not displayed].

Do you know someone who isn’t a member of the HSU? Send them this email and make sure they are represented. New members can join online at or call 1300 478 679 and join over the phone.
