ANF is currently
involved in EBA negotiations for improved wages and working conditions on
behalf of members employed at a number of private aged care facilities
Analysis of enterprise agreements across Victoria shows that
workplaces with a high ANF membership have higher wages and better working
conditions and staffing levels.
Here's five things you can do to support the 2013 Private Aged Care Campaign:
Invite your colleagues to join ANF. Make sure personal
care workers at your private or not-for-profit aged care facility know they can
join the ANF nursing family.
Ensure you have at least two Job Reps. Ask your Organiser for a nomination form or print the online form
Distribute the ANF claim and the aged care nurses' and
personal care workers' ‘Respect Our Work' campaign bumper stickers.
Attend scheduled ANF meetings to discuss the progress of
your negotiations and be involved in the decisions that will affect the outcome.
