Following advice from members, your HSU Organiser last year approached management and argued that Lab Aides working for Southern IML were being underpaid.
Southern IML management agreed to conduct a review of Lab Assistant pay grades and have now agreed to regrade 12 Lab Assistants from level ONE to level TWO effective from 16 January 2021.
The pay rate for a Level Two Lab Assistant is $21.96 for permanent staff and $27.45 for casuals.
If you are still a grade ONE Lab Assistant, please contact the union.
When HSU members work together, we get results!
Workers at Southern IML provide a crucial service to the community and you are skilled workers. You deserve better than the absolute minimum legally required pay rates. The HSU is fighting for higher wages and better conditions for ALL WORKERS at Southern IML.
