Private Sector Updates – Statewide


Calvary Health Care Tasmania

The ANMF met with members who indicated that unsafe workload concerns remain, and that the final wage offer from Calvary is not adequate to address cost of living pressures. Nor will the offer attract and retain the skilled nurses required to mitigate experienced staff who are leaving Calvary due to poor working conditions. Staff have grave concerns that the services offered by Calvary do not meet the gold standards expected from their patients. View the latest EA update. 

It is vitally important ALL MEMBERS respond to the survey that came in this update. Without full support from members, we cannot push for a better employment offer. Members are encouraged to contact ANMF Northern Organiser Nicki Hood via email at or Southern Organiser Jane Pond at if you have any concerns you want to raise.


May Shaw Scottsdale

At the last negotiation meeting May Shaw has reiterated the offer now tabled is the very best May Shaw can offer and therefore they seek endorsement from members. ANMF Northern Organiser Nicki Hood was onsite on Thursday 15th June 2023 to seek feedback from members. View the latest EA Update. If you have any comments you would like to pass onto Nicki, please email The next negotiation meeting has not been scheduled.
