Recently, yet another staff member at Tweed Hospital was assaulted at work. The police found that he was the victim of assault. Despite this, management dismissed him.
Members signed a petition calling for an independent investigation, but management refused.
The HSU will fight for this member’s rights in the Industrial Relations Commission, but this could take over a year.
Members need change now.
To hold management accountable the HSU has demanded all records of Code Black response team training and drill, and of Violence Prevention and Management (VPN) Training for HSAs and Security personnel.
There is more to be done.
