Work Health and Safety Update
Following a joint letter from the NTEU and CPSU to WorkCover requesting their assistance to get safe Work Health and Safety structures at CSU, both unions have now met with CSU management at their request to discuss a new model being proposed by CSU management. We are still waiting to receive this proposal in writing, but essentially we are led to believe that it will propose that the OHS committees and HSRs be treated separately, with committee members and Health and Safety Representatives being drawn from differently defined work groups (or zones.) This change in management’s position has come about through their discussions with WorkCover NSW (OHS regulator) who have indicated problems with what CSU management were planning for OHS at CSU.
While we welcome this change, we still have concerns about what management’s proposal may be, based on prior management proposals, and would like to seek your views on the proposal we receive.
