• Australia Post: Stop Bonuses for Screwing over Injured Workers!
    The CEO of Australia Post was paid $5.6 million of taxpayers' money a year. Under his reign, newspapers have revealed repeated scandals where management bonuses have resulted in managers delaying injury claims, refusing injury claims, unreasonably forcing injured workers to attend additional medical examinations and preventing workers from putting in a claim. The Australian Financial Review reported that Australia Post managers can earn up to $60,000 a year for engaging in this kind of behaviour. It's time for Australia Post to stop the rort at the expense of injured workers and our families.

  • We want our public hospitals in NSW to remain PUBLIC!
    Health care is a universal right and should be about patient care. A private operator will have to generate profit. That can only be achieved by underpaying or reducing staff and scrimping on services. Ultimately it’s the patients that suffer. If it's the choice between treating a private patient or one on Medicare we all know who misses out. We want to ensure our hospitals remain in public hands for the benefit of everyone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFTflWk8h5Q

  • More parking for RPA hospital staff!
    Our health workers are the backbone of our hospital system but changes to staff parking at RPA is making it harder for employees to get to work every day to provide the excellent service we are all used to. NSW Health has caused chaos for staff by implementing changes to car parks that are already heavily used by hospital users, university students and those who use local businesses. It’s bad enough that NSW Health is slugging the public with exorbitant parking fees, but now they want to push staff out so they can raise even more revenue. Instead of trying to rip off the public with huge parking fees, Jillian Skinner should be finding ways to support long-suffering employees. We are calling on the Baird Government to instruct the Local Health District to reverse its unfair parking decision. It is clear that this is another mean decision from a government that puts dollars and budgets before patients and staff.

  • Forget the survey - Save Medicare!
    Health care is a universal right and should be about patient care, not profit. The Ministers' survey is a smokescreen designed to push for further privatisation and erosion of Medicare. We will all suffer if health care becomes a race to the bottom only focused on the bottom line.

  • No Job Losses in Cleaning During the Covid Pandemic!
    Cleaners have never been more important to society. We are on the front line of the battle against COVID 19. However cleaners are not being treated with respect during the pandemic. Large numbers of cleaners have lost their jobs under lockdown restrictions. Even worse, many cleaners who have lost work cannot access Jobkeeper or Jobseeker. The cleaning industry has largely been built on the backs of migrant workers, but Jobkeeper and Jobseeker are only available to Australian citizens. Cleaners should not be going hungry at a time like this. Let's take care of cleaners so that cleaners can take care of society.

  • Midwives want water immersion
    Water immersion is proven to reduce epidural rates by up to 70%. Epidurals can lead to longer labours, much longer second stages (more expiratory effort), increased risk of instrumental birth and therefore increased risk of PPH and longer hospital stays. If you want to reduce the pressure on our health system, keep birth normal and low risk and encourage non-medical pain relief. If your PPE gets wet, change it. Birth is a splash hazard already. Bodily fluids expelled into a bath, are kept away from HCWs and furthermore diluted. Listen to midwives, the ones who are providing the care!

  • Stop Clive Palmer's Open Borders to Coronavirus
    Clive Palmer wants to overturn state border restrictions that have helped prevent the spread of coronavirus. This is the same billionaire who's mining company went insolvent and left hundreds of workers without jobs or entitlements. This is the same billionaire who spent $60 million during the last federal election trying to buy the outcome he wanted. He must be stopped and the Prime Minister and Australia's Attorney General should use all powers available to stop him.

  • Andrew Bolt is a public health menace.
    Bolt writes one of the widest distributed columns in the nation. He always uses this platform to promote his anti-science agenda. Maybe you can argue that is free speech. But when he is blatantly pedalling falsehoods on public health during a pandemic he must be refused a platform. Mr Weir needs to pull Bolt into line before people die.

  • Don't support freezing public health workers' pay
    Cassy O’Connor has said she supports a wage freeze for public sector workers, including hospital workers. RHH cleaners have gone above and beyond over last few months keeping people safe. They work in the heart of Cassy O’Connor’s electorate, Clark, and most live in the electorate too. They don’t understand why Cassy O’Connor and the Greens want to freeze their wages. In real terms, that amounts to a wage cut. Cleaners are calling on Cassy to change her position and support them, by allowing them to have the wage increase that the government agreed to. The agreements were negotiated in good faith and should be honoured. Health and community services workers deserve a pay rise that keeps up with the increases to their cost of living.

  • All risk no incentive? Pay rise for essential service workers
    The recent Covid 19 income support package has resulted in an imbalance. A hospital cleaner working full time is earning around $1000 per week before tax, and usually takes home around $750. The worker must meet all personal expenses including housing, transport, food, childcare, education and medical costs. The essential services workforce is being severely affected by the current crisis as many workers are having to stay home to care for families. We are not going to be able to recruit new workers to replace those who are unable to work. Potential employees would be better off on Centrelink benefits, safer and wealthier.
