Aged care workers have an important job caring for our elderly, and it’s vital they can do this in a safe and healthy environment.
We were shocked to find out an aged care centre at the Gold Coast had been denying its workers the 10 minute rest break they’re entitled to after 7 hours on the job.
When our members raised this, the aged care centre went a step further to spread misinformation to staff about their award. Our members deserve better than that.
With the support and advocacy of United Voice Queensland, we have ensured these workers now get their entitled rest break after 7 hours to allow them to do their jobs safely.
