Proposed Changes in the Charge Allowance at Calvary St Paul’s

  • Published July 26, 2022

Senior management at St Paul’s have announced their proposed changes to the Team leader allowance for Care Service Employees. Management have advised that staff have received information about the proposed change and that staff will have the opportunity to have one on one meetings with management. You can view the correspondence here.

As with any workplace change, you have rights. You have the right to:

  1. be consulted about the change! Consultation includes time to consider the change, to raise concerns, and to have those concerns properly considered.
  2. say NO! Contracted hours cannot be cut without your approval. Cuts to jobs can occur, but only with a redundancy or redeployment to a comparable position.
  3. representation! Ensure you are represented by the HSU when discussing workplace change.
  4. request any changes to your job be provided in writing and time to consider your response. Don’t feel rushed. Major changes to your job can have lasting impacts for you and your family.
  5. join the HSU! Only HSU members get representation and advice to stand up for their rights and protect their job.

This is also an opportunity to review the hours you have been regularly working. A casual regularly working more than 6 months without covering leave may be entitled to permanent part time. Permanent part time staff regularly working over their contracted hours for more than 12 months without covering leave are entitled to have these hours added to their contract.

Contact your local HSU organiser on 0408 164 519 or [E-Mail not displayed] if you need to speak to her regarding this or any other issue.
