Randwick Campus meeting to vote on pay rise and salary packaging arrangements

Union meetings will be held at Prince of Wales Hospital on 20 July 2023 at 6am, 12pm, 5pm and 10pm in the Edmund Blacket Theatre.

This meeting is an opportunity for members to vote in-person on two crucial matters: a pay rise and changes to salary packaging. Your vote will determine if any offers are accepted, or if members continue to fight for more. You can see the exact questions below.

You should now have received an email containing a link to vote online. All members are welcome at the meeting, but if you have already voted online we ask that you abstain from voting at the meeting.

Your vote matters. It will shape the future of our union and NSW Health. By attending the meeting, you will have the opportunity to engage in discussions, ask questions, and cast your vote.

This meeting will last for one hour. The Ministry of Health have agreed that members will receive pay for 30 minutes of this meeting.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to your local delegate or organiser.

Votes that will be put to the meeting:


The Government has offered to stop deducting an additional 10% of your salary packaging tax benefits. This means you would receive 60% of your salary packaging tax benefits.

Which of the following applies to you?

  1. Accept the offer of 60% salary packaging tax benefits being paid to health workers.
  2. Continue a campaign of industrial action to get to 100% of salary packaging tax benefits.


Which of the following applies to you?

  1. I wish to accept one of the Government pay offers.
  2. I wish to continue industrial action to campaign for a bigger pay rise.


If the majority of union members wish to accept an offer which is your preferred offer?

  1. A $3502 increase to all base rates in the Health Services Union Awards
  2. A 4% increase to all base rates in the Health Services Union Awards.
