In another win for transparency and fairness in the workplace, a Biomedical Engineering redundancy at the Royal Children’s has been withdrawn for a minimum of 12 months.
Health Professionals at the Royal Children’s recently received confirmation that a Change Impact Statement which would have seen one of their positions made redundant, has been withdrawn for a minimum of 12 months. During this period a comprehensive review will be undertaken – which will examine many elements raised by our members that were overlooked in the initial process.
This small but very important team within the Royal Children’s was not prepared to accept the management’s initial recommendations for change and worked with the VHPA to present all the relevant factors against the proposals.
“This important victory highlights the fact that Change Impact Statements can be challenged and management’s proposals should not be accepted as inevitable,” said Lead Organiser Linda Jenkin.
“Change is constant within our hospital networks however we expect that processes will be transparent and fair and that members will be treated with dignity and respect.”
