May Shaw – James Scott Wing and Aminya
Staff advise that they are experiencing continued stress due to unsustainable workloads. The ANMF received correspondence from May Shaw outlining their response to resolving the concerns raised by members. Based on the discussion at the recent meeting with members, the ANMF will write back to May Shaw proposing the establishment of a working group to progress some of the ongoing concerns. Members will be kept informed of outcomes of this request via email.
Masonic Care Tasmania – Peace Haven
The ANMF has received concerning reports about workplace issues at Peace Haven. These issues were discussed at a meeting with members on 31 March 2021. Outcomes from this meeting will be emailed to members shortly.
During a meeting with members in February, attendees expressed a hope to resolve workload concerns at Regis Legana in a staff-wide forum. This meeting was scheduled to be held on 24 March, however, due to administrative errors the meeting was rescheduled to 23 March without notification being provided to the ANMF. The ANMF is rescheduling a meeting with all staff at Regis Legana, however, will meet separately with members to determine the preferred course of action. Meeting dates will be sent to members via email soon.
Updates correct as at 1 April 2021.
