Members recognise the need for an EN on night shift and management are consulting staff on the change process. Clarification was required on the number of hours as it said 70 per fortnight in the Change Impact Statement when it should be 70 hours per week.
The ANMF contacted management and staff should be getting an email clarifying that it should be 70 hours per week. Members reported that they have been given opportunity to give feedback to management if they are prepared to do night shift and if so, what their roster might look like.
