Union WIN in MSHHS! Part timers maximised permanent hours

Posted on May 27, 2021

This is an exciting win for members at the Logan Switchboard!

A group of staff have been working well above their contracted 0.4 FTE for over 4 years, and they’d decided they’d had enough.

They joined Together, elected delegates, and approached their management as a group requesting that their permanent hours be maximized to what they were actually working. 

At first, their local manager said no, but they persisted and stood together as a group and won increases to 0.8 FTE and above. 

If you have problems in your workplace, you have the power to fix those problems by acting together with your colleagues. As individuals, it is easy to ignore you. When you act together with your colleagues Metro South has a lot harder time ignoring you than by yourself.
