More delays, more cost, less results

Posted December 8, 2014 by Together Queensland

Your union representatives provided your log of claims to management on 19 November 2014 for all our AO and OO members and management responded in relation to OO members only (see here).

Note the position of the Mater is confirmed to remove no forced redundancies, no forced redeployment and no contracting out clauses to take away your employment security.

Mater then insisted last week that we present this same log of claims again for AO members which they intend to respond to tomorrow. The Mater have committed to providing a detailed document of their OO claims on Wednesday but have not committed to a date for providing AO claims.

Having separate meetings to discuss the same issues is clearly an inefficient process and causing unnecessary delays.

The only way to combat this effectively is for more AOs and OOs to join Together and to commit to taking action to fight for a fair agreement.

This is what doctors in Queensland Health did earlier this year against terrible individual contracts and what National Union of Workers members did last week, taking industrial action to force Smith Chips to offer improvements to employment security and 3% backdated pay increases – those workers won when they joined the union, stuck together and stood firm.

Talk to your colleagues about joining you in your union to protect your rights and conditions and achieve a fair pay increase.

In union,

Your Together/ASU Delegates
