SummitCare Canley Vale GSO Roster Change: Know your rights!

SummitCare has notified HSU members of a major workplace change regarding the rosters in GSO (Catering and Laundry) area at Canley Vale. At this stage we understand that only the Canley Vale members are affected, but all HSU members are encouraged to contact the union if you have any information about major workplace changes at your site.

The proposed changes may affect your shift times and patterns or your workload. SummitCare has indicated that they will be maintaining your contracted hours. The proposed new roster is expected to be effective from the 19th of June 2023.

It’s important that you know your rights during this consultation period. 

1.    SummitCare must consult with all affected staff members. That means:

o   SummitCare must provide in writing all relevant information about the change.

o   SummitCare must invite you to give your views about the proposed change.

2.    HSU members have the right to be represented by the union. If your colleagues are not yet HSU members, encourage them to join the union so that they are represented.

3.    Do not sign anything you are not happy with. All HSU members are encouraged to seek advice before signing or agreeing to any changes.
