'For profit' aged care nurses get ready.
The majority of enterprise agreements in the 'for profit' aged care sector are up for renewal in the first half of next year and the NSWNA is beginning the preparations necessary to get a good outcome.
The NSWNA will send a survey to all members in the 'for profit' aged care sector to get feedback on how their current agreement is going and what they want in the new agreement. A log of claims committee will be selected at the Committee of Delegates meeting on 15 November. Delegates are encouraged to nominate for positions on the committee.
Training for bargaining for fair wages and conditions will be held on 1 February 2012.
NSWNA General Secretary Brett Holmes said 'If we start early, plan well and members get involved we can achieve excellent outcomes. Aged care nurses have an opportunity to get involved in the Campaign through the Bargaining Organising Committee. I also invite nurses to attend Bargaining for fair wages and conditions Training at the NSWNA in Waterloo on 1 February 2012. Please rsvp to NSWNA to register your attendance at the training by contacting Alicia McCosker on 1300 967 362. I would encourage them to do so.'
