CPSU NSW update: Consultation period on controversial restructure plan enters final phase

Consultation period on controversial restructure plan enters final phase – Aug 2019 (PDF version)

Northcott representatives have now met with around 86 Team Leaders as part of a consultation process to explain the company’s plan to slash wages by more than $20,000 a year.

Under the proposal Team Leader positions would be declared redundant and replaced with a “new” Service Coordinator role to coincide with the conclusion of the two-year employment guarantee period.

As we reach the end of the consultation period, we again encourage members to contact Northcott your thoughts on the proposed changes and structure. This can be done through their consultation email or through the CPSU NSW on your behalf.

Northcott has told us that they would make available a document explaining the differences between the Team Leader and Service Co-Ordinator roles. If it has been distributed, read it and provide your thoughts.

Remember, at this point in time you do not have to agree to anything.

Please take the time to review what is being proposed. Discuss it with your families. And provide written feedback to Northcott and the CPSU NSW.

In the meantime, we continue to receive information from affected staff and will prepare a submission to the company to outline member feedback.

In addition, we are also looking into legal avenues to protect the employment interests of our members.
