The proposed deal would have cemented a two-stage unfair wage and conditions system resulting from the acquisition of the Victorian Royal District Nursing Service by Queensland`s RSL Care in 2015. The new unit, Bolton Clarke, employs nurses in Victoria, Queensland and New South Wales. The last agreement proposed by Bolton Clarke proposed an unfair two-tier structure, with different salaries and conditions for nurses and nurses who perform the same work. The Fair Work Commission last week denied an ANMF injunction for Victorian employees, who will be covered by a separate agreement. Bolton Clarke employees are currently covered by five agreements, including the Royal District Nursing Service Ltd Victorian Operations Enterprise Agreement 2016 and the RSL Care Enterprise Agreement 2015. Vice President Hamilton said Bolton Clarke`s decision to end negotiations and pass the national agreement was legitimate. Vice President Hamilton heard that Bolton Clarke, the ANMF and eight other unions met 12 times, with the ANMF maintaining its position on the dedicated Victorian agreement. Once an application has been approved or rejected, it is no longer listed below. To find an agreement that has been approved or modified, please find an agreement. Last March, Bolton Clarke withdrew from negotiations for a new national agreement. Management then decided to vote on its proposed agreement following the Fair Work Commission`s decision of 12 July to reject the ANMF`s (Vic Branch) request for a Victoria-only agreement, known as a scope.
Lisa Fitzpatrick, AnMF Secretary, said: “Congratulations to our members at Bolton Clarke who are together and reject this disrespectful agreement. If your application has been submitted in advance, you can check the status of your agreement by sending an email to the Commission`s contract team under email@example.com. The Queensland Nurses and Midwives Union (QNMU) wanted to ban the rival Nurses` Professional Association of Queensland (NPAQ) from participating in the negotiations on companies. The list of applications includes the case number, the name of the applicant, the title of the agreement, the sector, the date of filing of the application, the approval or amendment of an agreement and the status of the application. Within minutes of the hearing that began last week, QNMU representative Kevin Crank acknowledged that the NPAQ had the right to represent members in business negotiations. . . .
