Temporary employment in Sunshine Coast HHS

Posted by Alex Griffin on August 9, 2018

Recently Together members across Sunshine Coast HHS have been contacting the union office to notify of permanent roles being left vacant, or permanent vacancies being filled using temporary contracts. This is a concern for members as it impacts on job security and the workloads of staff, as well as the health service you work for. Your Enterprise Agreement clearly states that "where a permanent employee leaves due to retirement, resignation, termination, transfer or promotion they will be replaced by a permanent employee" and outlines that this process must occur in 14 days or less.

Posted by Heather Hayes on August 9, 2018

Last week, there was a Clinical Assistant review scheduled for Wednesday. Together members and delegates were prepared to discuss roles in HSQ, with phlebotomist, lab assistant and mortuary assistants ready to attend. Unfortunately, Queensland Health failed to get the right management in the room to discuss these matters, and decided to cancel the meeting.

Now is the opportunity to improve your workplace.

Posted by Alex Scott on August 8, 2018

Together members have identified important improvements to the working lives of public servants in Queensland. The issues that members have raised in their workplaces have been put into our collective log of claims for a new agreement.

But so far in negotiations, the government is yet to respond to our key claims.
