Opal bargaining is underway: Have your say today

Opal HealthCare have finally agreed to start bargaining with HSU members for a new enterprise agreement.

This means that we can have a say in the things that affect us at work, like our rates of pay and our working conditions. Have your say here on the top priorities for negotiation.

What is an Enterprise Agreement and what is bargaining?

Your enterprise agreement sets your pay and conditions at work. It governs all your entitlements like access to leave, your rostering arrangements, when Opal must consult with you, and of course your pay increase!

Your HSU bargaining team is made up of HSU Delegates at who work at Opal and is supported by the union’s Industrial Officers.

If you’re an HSU member, you’ll be represented by the HSU bargaining team. If you’re not an HSU member yet, join now to support our campaign for better pay and conditions at Opal.
