Unions representing staff at Anglicare have been working hard to try and finalise your new Enterprise Agreement.
However, Anglicare is still insisting on making significant cuts to your workplace rights and conditions.
Your agreement expired more than two years ago. In October 2018, after many months of negotiations, a new agreement was voted up by staff with a 92.4% Yes vote.
Unfortunately, Anglicare refused to honour the vote and to make the simple updates the Fair Work Commission asked it to in order for the agreement to be approved.
A year later Anglicare committed to staff that it would make these changes, only to backflip and produce a long list of cuts and amendments instead.
Last week, unions wrote to CEO Chris Jones and demanded Anglicare stop playing games.
We’ve said they need to stop the cuts and honour their commitment to staff. Take the voted up agreement, make the changes Fair Work has asked and get it done.
We won’t accept the proposed changes that could see staff working longer hours for less money.
Anglicare talks a lot about its values – now is the time for the organisation to act on them.
