Tricky employer tactics to stall negotiations
Our response: The NSWNA has already proven that employers can pay a fair rise. In the last aged care work value case, Professor of Accounting at UNSW, Bob Walker, submitted evidence that proved the capacity of aged care employers to pay a fair payrise.
What you can do: Ask for a specific timeframe.
What you can do: Hold a meeting of nurses and pass a resolution requesting management to begin the process for an agreement. Call the NSWNA to discuss specific things that nurses can request as part of your resolution.
What you can do: Re-assert that workers are all united and determined in asserting their right to fair pay and conditions.
What you can do: Have a clear agenda in meetings and keep bringing discussions back to the agenda.
