Workplace changes at Scalabrini - know your rights

  • Published June 7, 2022

Today Scalabrini management held meetings with staff about major changes at your workplace. Your local HSU Organiser Hyojung Kim attended these.

Management has now commenced individual meetings with staff about the impact of these changes.

Your Union is here to help you stand up for your rights. During consultation you and your colleagues have the right to:

  • Be consulted about the change. Consultation includes time to consider the change, to raise concerns, and to have those concerns properly addressed.
  • Say No. Contracted hours cannot be cut without your approval. Cuts to jobs can occur, but only with a redundancy or redeployment to a comparable position.
  • Representation. Ensure you are represented by the HSU when discussing major workplace change.
  • Request any changes to your job be provided in writing and time to consider your response. Don’t feel rushed. Major changes to your job can have lasting impacts for you and your family.
  • Join your Union the HSU! Only HSU members get representation and advice to stand up for their rights and protect their job. Join now online or phone 1300 478 679.

If you need help or advice about a workplace change, email [E-Mail not displayed] or phone 1300 478 679 or contact your Organiser HyoJung Kim at [E-Mail not displayed].

If you know a work mate who is not a member yet, encourage them to join the union. We are stronger when we stand together.
