Australian Red Cross Blood Service (Lifeblood) After a nationwide mass member meeting on Sunday 10 September 2023, during which ANMF members unanimously expressed their support for ongoing EA negotiations, progress has been achieved regarding certain items listed in the Log of Claims (LoC). As Lifeblood/Red Cross is currently negotiating a national Agreement this has led to protracted bargaining as each state/territory has different agreements to work through. The ANMF Tasmanian branch continues to push for our members entitlements whilst rejecting claims that directly erode the very entitlements you seek to hold onto. Members are encouraged to respond to any correspondence sent as the ANMF Federal branch is seeking your feedback in various ways i.e., surveys, mass member meetings, onsite member meetings etc. If you have any concerns or feedback you wish to raise with the negotiation team please contact Northern Organiser, Nicki Hood via email at Nicki.Hood@anmftas.org.au.
