Wide Bay Health Services in 2014

Posted January 16, 2014 by Together Queensland

Firstly, happy New Year.  Let’s hope 2014 will see better recognition and support for health services from the government.

You can influence this by committing as a group of workers to continue to be reasonable but vocal in your workplace and in the community.

One important way to do this is by members like yourself nominating to take part in local workplace consultative forums.

If you want to have a say in your workplace - why not nominate for one of the following groups? You don't have to be a delegate to nominate.

  1. Wide Bay Health Service District Consultative Committee. This is the major consultative group that meet monthly with senior managers. It is often in this forum where management will disclose or are questioned on proposed workplace changes. At least 2 nominations from each hospital are needed. Any interested member or delegate is able to nominate.
  2. Health Practitioners Local Consultative Committee (District Wide) Currently there is only 1 active delegate Amanda Dyson-Windle from Hervey Bay who normally attends this forum. We need more reps so the meetings can take place in 2014. HPs who are employed directly by the district are strongly encouraged to nominate.
  3. Administrative Local Consultative Committees - There are currently two administration committees who meet with senior administration managers. One for district employees in the Fraser Coast and one for Bundaberg and Rural Health Services. At least three nominations from Administration delegates or members at each hospital site are needed. Members in rural hospitals are also strongly encouraged to nominate.

Local Operational Consultative Committees - These meet monthly at both Fraser Coast and Bundaberg HS. Please indicate your interest if you would like to attend with me this year.

It is vital that members volunteer for these forums so you can keep the communication between management and union delegates and members open locally. It is also a great way to target issues that are affecting you and your colleagues and work towards a resolution in a timely way.

Nominations open now and will remain open until the 31st January 2014.

Send your nominations to me via Donna.Webster@together.org.au and if you have any questions please call or email me. My phone number is 0429 010
