Health staff to seek Commission’s intervention

Posted October 21, 2011 by Alex Scott

After months of negotiations and a strong industrial campaign that has seen growing disruption in Queensland hospitals, the Together union is seeking the involvement of the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission to prevent patients becoming a political football.

“We have seen mounting chaos in Queensland’s hospitals and it’s obvious that the government is ignoring patients’ needs,” Together Secretary Alex Scott said today.

“We don’t want to hurt patients, we want an outcome that protects the future of Queensland Health, but even the level of chaos and disruption that have taken place are not a worry for this uncaring government,” he said.

“We are asking for the Commission to intervene in this dispute since the government has stopped listening not only to its staff, but to the needs of patients as well. This situation is out of control for the government”, he said.
