Aged Care Updates – Statewide
Southern Cross Care Tasmania (SCCT)
SCCT is close to finalising matters in relation to underpayment. An internal memo and communication will be circulated shortly. The ANMF is pressing SCCT to structure any payments in a way that will minimise members taxation burden.
Safety complaints are being heard and actioned. Worksafe Tasmania is still working through ANMF correspondence regarding management failure to help staff activate their COVID-19 response.
The ANMF still encourages members to feedback issues related to absence or instability of leadership in SCCT sites, especially in COVID-19 management. Members are encouraged to look after themselves and their colleagues in these unreasonable situations. Use internal SCCT reporting systems, if you can, to highlight the impact on your workload and morale. Notify the ANMF if you are unable to get a response from your internal systems.
Enterprise Agreement (EA)
The ANMF Industrial Team is currently looking over the final Draft EA document prior to SCCT putting the EA to a vote in coming weeks. Look out for an email with detail of changes.
Changes to Servery and Catering
The ANMF has been made aware these changes are still affecting members, staff, and residents and we encourage members to continue to let SCCT know how these changes are affecting your role.

The ANMF, on behalf of members from Coroneagh Park, formally raised a number of workload concerns with Respect management. A response has been received which will be discussed with members at a meeting to be convened in the coming week. Come along and have your say. Click here for more information.
