Members have raised ongoing concerns regarding excessive workloads and conditions. The ANMF continues to emphasise that the current excessive workloads need to be addressed and reflected in the Enterprise Agreement. Read the full update here.

Calvary Health Care
The ANMF has scrutinised the final draft Enterprise Agreement for Calvary Health Care and agreed for it to go to ballot. The employer opened the access period for staff from Wednesday 14 April 2021. The electronic ballot period is open from 9am on 29 April 2021 to 4pm on 5 May 2021. The ANMF has planned regular weekly meetings at Calvary Health Care sites across the State to meet with members during this process and answer any questions.

Southern Cross Care Tasmania
Southern Cross Care Tasmania management has proposed a wage increase of 1.5% from December 2021 and for 2022 and 2023. In addition to this, a proposal has been put forward to make meal breaks (for clinical staff) unpaid. A survey from the ANMF will be sent to members via email shortly to consult regarding the proposed offer. We will also be scheduling meetings with members in the coming weeks. The next Bargaining meeting is scheduled for 21 April 2021.

The ANMF has consulted with members at OneCare about the latest Enterprise Agreement.
