Public Health members: Pay increase campaign and survey

Following the HSU's survey of members in April 2021, the HSU has submitted a log of claims to the Ministry of Health in response to their offer of 1.5% pay increase from 1 July 2021.

The HSU has considered the sacrifice made by its members over the past year in not receiving a fair and reasonable pay increase and believes the current offer does not adequately compensate for the tireless work and commitment by HSU members, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The HSU is pursuing a pay increase of 4.7% as well as a number of other conditions as part of our campaign, and we are seeking members' views on these. 

Please take a few moments to complete the HSU’s follow-up survey at this link:

The results of the survey will help us to plan the campaign going forward.

It’s never been more important for health workers to stand together. If you know someone who hasn’t yet joined the HSU, tell them to get on board and help make our Union stronger. New members can join at or call 1300 478 679.
