As the Union gears up for enterprise bargaining in the public sector next year, one of the big issues employers are likely to raise is pharmacists hours of work arrangements.
Pharmacists will remember this is an issue that the employers pushed hard for in the last negotiation. We need to be prepared for similar claims in and the best way to protect ourselves from such claims is by strengthening our voice with more members.
In the lead up to next year’s bargaining it’s vital that we continue to grow the Union’s membership to further strengthen our voice. Working collectively means we will have a much stronger bargaining position. And we’re going to need everyone if it means protecting our hard won conditions and rights at work.
