Eskleigh Nurses
The Employer has proposed further amendments to the Enterprise Agreement that were not included in its log of claims.  The majority of the employers amendments have been rejected, unless they relate to drafting issues or are more advantageous to employees.

Medea Park
The ANMF have made a counter – offer and are currently waiting for a response from the employer.  Membership will be contacted as soon as a response is received.

The Employer failed to lodge the approved Enterprise Agreement with the Fair Work Commission.  The ANMF have asked the employer to re-commence the access period.  If the employer does acquiesce to this request, the ANMF will look to lodge a bargaining order at the Fair Work Commission.

The Eye Hospital
The ANMF met with members on Friday 6 December. The ANMF has requested bargaining re-commence following a failure to agree to terms.  The ANMF have issued a new proposal to the employer.  The ANMF will be in touch with members once a response is received from the employer.

The ANMF met with the employer on 5 December 2019.  The employer is adamant that it cannot financially sustain paid meal breaks for the term of the new enterprise agreement.  The ANMF advised the employer that our members would not agree to the removal of the paid meal breaks.  The employer is therefore revising its offer.  The ANMF will be in contact with members as soon as we receive the employer’s new proposal.

Updates correct as at 12 December 2019.
