Enterprise Agreement Updates: Private & Aged Care Sectors
Latest news and updates from across the state
We are frequently updating information regarding enterprise agreements from private and aged care sites across Tasmania so our members can stay informed. However, due to the Christmas/New Year period, many employers and employer representatives have been on leave. As a result, there has been little activity in relation to progressing Enterprise Agreements during this period.
Calvary Health Care Tasmania The ANMF have been advised that Calvary management has surveyed Nurse Unit Managers (NUM’s) about their workloads. We believe that members have been honest in their responses and this information is currently being reviewed by Calvary. The ANMF anticipate further correspondence from your employer by 28 January 2021.
Southern Cross Care The next Enterprise Bargaining Agreement (EBA) meeting is scheduled on 27 January 2021. The discussion is focused on working through the current Agreement in an attempt to clarify and simplify the wording (without losing any current entitlements) and there has been little response to the ANMF members Log of Claims to date.
Healthscope The protected Action Ballot is now underway. The ANMF (as is required by the legislation) have provided a copy of a list of eligible members working at Healthscope to the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC). The AEC then match that list with the list provided by the employer. People who appear on both lists, will receive ballot papers. Unfortunately, it is apparent that a few members (who are on the ANMF list) are yet to receive ballots. The AEC have asked members to contact them directly. If you have not received the ballot papers contact the AEC ASAP on (02) 9375 6366. On calling please advise that you are an ANMF member by quoting PAB 863.
