If you work in private aged care, and your enterprise agreement is due for renegotiation, you should complete this online form.
This form has been developed to take full advantage of the new industrial relations laws to commence 1 July 2009. Some employers refuse to negotiate with the ANF for a new enterprise agreement. The new laws say that if the majority of employees want the ANF to be their ‘bargaining agent' your employer must negotiate with ANF.
Our experience has been that ANF negotiated agreements result in better salaries and conditions than those where ANF have not been involved. Once you have completed the form, please encourage other nurses and personal care staff at your workplace to do the same!
Remember, we need the majority of nurses and personal care workers to complete a bargaining agent authority to maximize our opportunities to achieve a new agreement. .
