On Monday 18 November 2019, the ANMF received correspondence from Medea Park detailing a response to the ANMF counteroffer presented on behalf of members. Medea Park have not agreed to five days paid union leave. However, they have agreed to a foul and nauseous linen allowance but this can only be accessed when an employee is working during, and in the area where there is, a notifiable illness. The employer has not agreed to five days evidence free personal leave per annum. In addition, they have agreed to a new casual conversion and part time hours clause. Given the proposed wage freeze in the first year of the agreement, the ANMF have written back to Medea Park and requested they rethink their counter offer. A further update will be provided once a response back has been received.
