Health Practitioner Victory!

Posted June 8, 2012 by Alex Scott

It's time to celebrate the success of the HP Stronger together campaign (www.together.org.au/hp/), which resulted in union members breaking the government's wages policy, maintaining and winning new conditions.

The second HP agreement was not easily won.  It was the result of thousands of union members working actively together to send a clear message to the government that they would not be ignored. 

Breaking the government's wages policy is a huge achievement for union members and is a fantastic way to show potential members how a strong union benefits them.

Union members would never have been able to break this wages policy if it had not been for the tireless work by our activists and delegates.  It is a testament to the strength, commitment and determination demonstrated by these Union members who have continued the struggle over the last four years. 

Members will receive their wage increases and back pay on 14 December and so now It's time to celebrate this win at the end of a very long hard fought campaign. During these Union HP stronger together celebrations, we are inviting all health practitioners to get together and celebrate.

Celebrations have been organized at a number of sites but you can organise your own Union HP Celebration, it's easy! All you need to do is download a kit to set up a celebration in your area by going to www.together.org.au/hp

Delegates have put together a brief video telling the story of the campaign, which will be shown on the day, but you may like to share pics of your local HP event with everyone - simply email your photos to hp@together.org.au 

Hope we see you there!
