SVHA update: pay rise and upcoming negotiations

As you will know your enterprise agreement has expired. However, after member action a 2.25% pay rise has been secured. This increase will be backdated to the first full pay period from January 2022.

Your union will now start negotiations for the next enterprise agreement. The first meeting will be on 11 July.

Please find more information about when you can expect payment in the letter from SVHA to the HSU at this link. And spread the word: let your colleagues know that we can win better pay and conditions only if we stand together as active union members!

As we are preparing to renegotiate our next enterprise agreement with SVHA, please be on the lookout for membership meetings and organiser visits within the coming weeks.
