The HSU has received correspondence from Sydney Dental Hospital management relating to the regrading of Dental Assistants from G1 to G2 in line with the current duties that they are performing. You can view the correspondence at this link.
Once this issue was raised by several HSU members, your HSU representatives sought a meeting with management and outlined the concerns raised by members. Management agreed to undertake an investigation and review in response to the concerns raised, and has now advised that Dental Assistants Grade 1 who possess the requisite qualifications will have the opportunity to progress to Level 2.
If you continue to have any questions or concerns, please email your HSU organiser Melissa Kelly via firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can only achieve great outcomes with strong union membership in the workplace. If you know someone who hasn’t yet joined the HSU, encourage them to take the plunge today and join here or call 1300 478 679.
