Update 23 August 2013

Posted by dangoldman on August 23, 2013

Dear members,

Last Thursday MPH responded to some more of our claims and have now made a wage offer to employees. This offer is made on the basis of the items MPH have indicated are agreed or not agreed which are set out further on in this email. The process will be that if the bargaining representatives agree “in principle” with this offer, a proposed agreement would then be drafted to be voted on by all staff.

Once your representatives agree to these proposals there will only be further opportunity to negotiate if the agreement is not support in the ballot, so it is important that you carefully consider the offer being made and make your voice heard.

There are two options that management have put to bargaining representatives, one includes a wage increase of 2.5% and an increase in Sunday penalties to 200% and the other includes a wage increase of 2.75% and an increase in Sunday penalties to 175%. All other conditions and amounts are identical between the two proposals. There is an online survey to collate feedback in relation to these offers which will ask you to select between “Option 1”, “Option 2” or “No deal”.

Please click here for more details on the offer and to have your say. 

Please contact health@together.org.au or 1800 177 244 with any concerns or queries.
