Southern Cross Care (SCCT)
Enterprise Agreement (EA)
The employer has finally provided a copy of the draft agreement; this is currently being reviewed by our industrial team.
Changes to leadership at SCCT, Underpayments Issue, Lack of Clinical Leadership
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, and escalate to next level management 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, and managers. Also, notify the ANMF if you are ordered to attend a one-to-one meeting so we can follow up and ensure procedural fairness and support.
In the absence of a Facility Manager, the ANMF encourages members to action concerns as above under Lack of Clinical Leadership.
