Masonic Care Tasmania – Peace Haven and Fred French Handover
On 11 March 2020, the ANMF wrote to management of Masonic Care Tasmania regarding member concerns that their 15 minute paid handover per shift was not being provided as required under the Nursing Enterprise Agreement. The ANMF received a response with Masonic Care Tasmania detailing that there has been an oversight in the application of the 15 minutes paid handover provision. As a result, the employer has advised that they will immediately commence payment of this time. Additionally, they have provided an offer to settle the underpayment which, for some members, goes back several years. We will continue liaising with Masonic Care Tasmania management to identify affected members and employees. If you have not already registered your details with the ANMF in regards to this matter, you can contact our Member Support Team for further details. Please note that this matter relates only to members covered by the Masonic Care Tasmania Northern Nursing Agreement.
