The HSU has received notification from St Elizabeth Home management that they are making plans for a restructure that includes a reschedule of rosters and a reduction of shifts.
Initial meetings will be held this coming Friday and Monday at 10:30am and 2:30pm on both days. You are strongly encouraged to attend one of these meetings. This will be the start of the consultation process that is expected to take place over the next two weeks.
Your Organiser Marion Jennings will be available to make representations to management through the consultation process.
It is important that members know their rights in any change process:
You have the right to be consulted about the change. That gives you the right to raise any issues with the change and management must give consideration to those issues.
You have the right to say NO! Contracted hours cannot be cut without your approval. Cuts to jobs can occur, but only with agreement, a redundancy or redeployment to a comparable position. Do not sign anything you are not happy with.
You have the right for the changes to be put to you in writing and time to consider them.
You have the right to representation! Ensure you are represented by the HSU when discussing major workplace change.
