ANMF was recently contacted for advice on the entitlement of uniform allowance which is not being paid to some nurses. Under the Nurses and Midwives (Tasmanian State Service) Award, Part IV, Clause 6(b) employees who provided direct care and who are required not to wear a uniform, e.g. mental health, and child and family health nurses are to be paid an allowance of $250 per annum from the first full pay period on, or after, 1 February each year.
