RDNS Enterprise Bargaining | Joint PSA and HSA Meetings Next Week

26 June 2020

Members would have received an email from Silverchain management about the delay in Enterprise Bargaining due to COVID-19.

The Public Service Association (PSA) and the Health Services Union (HSU) are working together to ensure union members’ jobs and conditions are protected in this process and you have a say about the future of your work at RDNS.

For those staff covered by the State Public Sector Enterprise Agreement, all your current conditions will continue until a new Silverchain agreement is made or the new State Agreement is made. The SA Public Sector Agreement is now being negotiated but these discussions are moving slowly as the State Government wants to remove Job Security which is not acceptable to the PSA and our members.

The PSA and HSU Organisers will be holding meetings in the next week to:

  •  Provide the latest information about the Bargaining Process
  •  Discuss a log of claims for bargaining
  •  Provide information that compares the SA Public Sector Agreement and the current Silverchain non-nursing agreement

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are holding four meetings and organising them in large rooms to enable physical distancing. We will also be holding one video conference meeting using Zoom for staff who cannot attend face to face meetings or are working from home. Contact PSA for meeting details.
