Melbourne Health Pledge:
I pledge to stand with my colleagues to address workload issues at my workplace, Melbourne Health.
I recognise that the ongoing workload issues being experienced by Allied Health Professionals at Melbourne Health are neither fair nor sustainable. I will not work unpaid hours, whether this be by starting work early, leaving late or working through my breaks.
Where needed, I will perform “reasonable overtime” as required by our Agreement however, this will be paid time or Time Off In Lieu (TOIL) at penalty rates.
I acknowledge that any other use of my labour in an unpaid capacity constitutes wage theft and I will not facilitate this for myself, nor promote a work culture where this is acceptable for my colleagues.
I will support my colleagues in this struggle and do all I can to promote our cause.
We stand together for what is right. Solidarity makes us strong.
I, the signed below, agree to abide by my pledge and hereby refuse to do unpaid work / or refuse to be subject to wage theft.
Please note, this pledge will be retained by VAHPA and will not be shared with any other organisation.
