Thank you to everyone who came to the meeting last night. Unfortunately, there was an error in our calculations and there is no underpayment unless you are a Level 1.1.

Underpayment aside, this is still a bad enterprise agreement and the only way we will stop it is by workers sticking together in the union.

Management is trying to cut:

  • Travel time
  • Travel allowance
  • Redundancy pay
  • Shift allowances
  • Sleepover allowance
  • Penalty rates
  • Buddy allowance
  • Accident make-up pay
  • The ability for Fair Work to decide on disputes

You can see a list of all of the proposed changes here

We need to get organised and let management know that they can’t cut your conditions and they need to pay a fair pay increase.

We expect to be meeting with management in early September and will let you know once this meeting has taken place.

All employees covered by the EA get to vote on the EA. MHA Care can only bring in these reductions to pay and conditions if you let them. We need you to talk to your co-workers and ask them to join the union.
