The method of rostering the 38 hour week may be by any of the following: by employees working less than eight ordinary hours per day; by employees working less than eight ordinary hours on one or more days each week; by rostering employees off on various days of the week during the work cycle; or by accumulating rostered days off to a maximum of five such days

Rostering

1.10.10

Provided that there will be a maximum of one authorised delegate per each workplace in centres of up to 60 licensed childcare places and there will be a maximum of 5 paid days per centre per annum.

1.10.16

The employer shall provide a noticeboard or other suitable space for the posting of union notices or communications. As a matter of courtesy, a copy of the union notice shall be forwarded to the employer prior to displaying on the notice board. Credentialed delegates shall have the right to place notices on notice boards within the workplace, provided that such notices are authorised by the union and deal with legitimate workplace or industry matters or union advice.

1.10.17

LHMU and ASU officials have a standing invitation to visit worksites covered by this Agreement for the purpose of acting as the representative of a member/s or potential member/s of that union during disciplinary, consultative or dispute proceedings or in connection with any other workplace or industry matter. As a matter of courtesy, the LHMU and ASU will contact the centre prior to any visit taking place. They shall be allowed time during working hours and a suitable mutually agreed location within the workplace to confer with their member/s prior, during and subsequent to discussions with management. Where a matter involves more than one employee, the union representative shall be afforded the opportunity to meet with them collectively prior, during and subsequent to discussions with management.

2.3.4

An employee whose progression has been refused or deferred may invoke the provisions of clause 1.2.2 – Dispute Resolution. If the resolution results in the advancement being granted, any increase in wages will be backdated to the relevant anniversary date.
