Private Sector Updates – Statewide
The ANMF has been advised that the EA ballot vote was unsuccessful. Organisers will be visiting Hobart Private and St Helen’s to seek member feedback for the reasons for rejecting the proposed agreement. The ANMF will be asking if members want to commence industrial action. This will be by a protected action ballot. If the majority of members want to commence action, then all members will need to send their vote back for it to count. 50% need to send their ballot back or it will be unsuccessful as in the previous 2 protected action ballots.
The ANMF is holding a member meeting on Friday 9th July from 1.30-2.30pm to discuss the EA log of claims and any other issues. All members welcome.

The employer is holding information sessions for staff across the State and a ballot will open from 13 July 2021.
Updates correct as at 8 July 2021.
