RNSH industrial action

Tomorrow health workers across NSW are taking industrial action.  

Health workers know why – it’s time for a pay rise. It’s time to put an end to this Government stealing half of your salary packaging benefits. It’s time for an increase to superannuation. It’s time to fix out of date Awards. 

It’s been two months. But this Government has been silent on pay for health workers.  

Enough is enough. Tomorrow, RNSH members are taking action. The below are industrially protected action:


  • Ban on 2nd rubbish collection approx 2pm
  • Ban on terminal/ infectious discharge cleans  

Security Officers 

  • Ban on parking fines
  • Ban on patient escorts (except in ED) 

Allied Health D&A 

  • Ban on coordinating or facilitating group sessions 


  • Ban on picking up linen for AM shift
  • Ban on restocking of departments
  • Ban on patient transfers between 9am-10am 

Admin Officers 

  • Hand out flyer to public/staff, tape to wheelchairs and bathroom doors.
  • Work to rule 

This Government needs to hear us loud and clear: it’s time for action now.
