In early October, union delegates from E tū and NZNO met with Heritage management to continue the push for a fair deal for all Heritage workers.
Over a year ago, we told Heritage that we wanted a union agreement that protects all staff in all Heritage facilities, and we’ve been working on that ever since.
Last week was a mix of good news and bad news. Recently Heritage received a 3% funding increase from the DHBs.
- The good news is that Heritage is offering pay increase of 3% to all household staff and further pay rises to nurses.
- The bad news is that care staff were not included. We continue to push for carer to move faster up the pay scales.
- The good news is that Heritage has offered to include the sites that used to have a collective, including the BUPA and Oceania sites.
- The bad news is that most other sites are shut out.
Your bargaining team have told Heritage that their proposal is not fair.
E tū and NZNO are recommending to members that we accept the pay rise for household staff, RNs, and ENs, and that we continue to push for a fair deal for all Heritage staff.
If you want to add you voice to the call for a fair deal at Heritage you can help by making sure everyone at your work is union member!
