RPA Social Workers rostered on Admin duties

Members in the Social Work department at RPA have raised a concerning issue you’re your HSU Organiser. Members report being required to do the work of an Admin Officer within the department, and being rostered on to perform these duties on a 6 week rotation.

Your Organiser has raised this matter with management as a matter of urgency. It is not the job of a Social Worker to fill in or to be rostered on to perform Admin duties. Admin staff perform a valuable role within the health system and this work should be performed by an admin professional, allowing Social Workers to do their own valuable work.

The HSU has informed Social Work members not to perform the duties of a Admin Officer and are awaiting a response from management as to when the position will be filled.

Do you know someone who isn’t yet a HSU member? Encourage them to join and have their say. It’s never been more important for health workers to stand together – new members should visit www.hsu.asn.au/join or call the Union on 1300 478 679.
