Westmead CASB Update: Emergency Department set to open Wednesday

The HSU has received a reply to our letter requesting a 4-week delay to the opening of the new Clinical Acute Services Building. A copy can be viewed at this link.

The Westmead General Manager has given assurances there are measures in place to ensure all our members are safe and there will be adequate staffing levels to manage any increases in workloads.

We are currently working through some outstanding areas of concern in the Medical Imaging and Orderlies Departments and speaking with members from these areas to convey directly to management their specific concerns and needs.

Although we have been able to secure these broad assurances from the General Manager, it’s important for members to stay vigilant by reporting any issues during the transition phase to your local delegates or to your HSU Organiser via email brendan.roberts@hsu.asn.au or mobile 0425 181 361. This way, they can addressed immediately. 

Being protected and supported is now more important than ever. The best way to do it is to make sure union membership is strong and engaged. Encourage your workmates to join the HSU at www.hsu.asn.au/join or 1300 478 679.
