Health Services Union Of Wa (Hsuwa) Agreement 2018

You can contact the union office at 9328 5155 or union@hsuwa.com.au by email if you would like to discuss the offer and its impact on you. The resolutions recommended to the union`s elected board of directors the draft claims. The commission unanimously approved the requests and ordered that formal negotiations with the Ministry of Health be initiated without delay. The HSU`s campaign for a fair enterprise agreement was referred to the Commission after the Barnett government refused to grant VA members salary increases comparable to those of doctors, nurses and other health professionals.

Recommendation from the HSUWA Management Committee The union`s Board of Directors reviewed the Department`s offer in the context of current economic and industrial relations and recommends that members accept the Department of Health`s offer.

At the last round of EBA negotiations in 2014, members approved a strategy to focus on the best possible pay rises. As most members will recall, we achieved this goal after trade union actions and arbitrations, with an increase of 3.75% from 1 July 2014 and 3.5% from 1 July 2015. The economic and employment environment changed rapidly last year, with rising unemployment, flattened wage growth, the lowest budget deficit and the worst debt situation in the state`s history. Focusing on the best pay increases we have in 2014 meant that the other two key issues that are important to members, namely job security and workload management, could not be addressed. The importance of job security and workload management was confirmed in the union`s survey of members earlier this year, at work meetings and in e-mail, telephone and personal interviews with members. The proposed wage increases are modest, but in the current economic environment, any additional increases should be paid for by members` jobs. Achieving an improved offer would require a major campaign of collective struggles that appears to be at odds with the current sentiment of the members. The Barnett government has argued that our members are the highest paid in the country and we must agree that our rates of pay are very competitive with other government and public sector salaries.

The union received a wage offer from the department of 1.5% from 1 July 2016 and a further increase of 1.5% from 1 July 2017 and an additional 1.5% from 1 July 2018. « This is a great victory for our members and for the public health system, » Hill said. Our goal is to reach an agreement by June 30, 2018. « We understand that the Barnett government is in financial trouble, but we did not believe that our members should be asked to contribute more to the state`s fiscal position than other workers in the health care system. In its decision, the Commission agrees with us and we welcome that. So far, the negotiations have been effective and reasonably productive. We have now presented the Department with the main proposed amendments to the agreement and explained the reasons and justifications for the claims. Any staff member who resigns before the health agreement is registered is not (legally) entitled to reimbursement.

The union held a reps conference at Perth Zoo on Thursday (April 12th) to finalise the minutes of the union`s application for a new enterprise contract (EBA). The offer was made by the union`s board of directors subject to a vote
