Aged Care Updates – Statewide

Southern Cross Care Tasmania (SCCT)

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.

Enterprise Agreement (EA)

The ANMF visited all SCCT sites prior to the EA vote last week. Members are generally satisfied with the offer. The result will be known soon, look out for an update from ANMF and a memo from SCCT.
