SOM2 Changes at St Anne's & St Joseph's- Know Your Rights!

Yesterday Catholic Healthcare announced that it would be implementing its new roster system at St Anne’s and St Joseph.

Impacted members will be asked to attend a consultation meeting to discuss what these changes will mean to you.

You have rights during consultation. You have the right to:

  • Be represented by your union
  • Ask questions and be provided with information about why the change is happening and what Catholic Healthcare is doing to minimise the impact on you
  • Say no- if Catholic Healthcare wants to reduce your contracted hours you have the right to refuse 

Members are encouraged to seek advice and support before signing anything- you can contact the HSU Member Services Division on 1300 478 679 or your local HSU Organiser Anu Mahimkar at to discuss the changes and what they mean to you.

If you know someone who isn’t a HSU member let them know that union members will be supported. New members can join at or by calling 1300 478 679.

In unity,

Gerard Hayes

Secretary, HSU NSW/ACT/QLD
