Dispute - Personal Reclassification Operative Date

29 January 2016

The Public Service Association (PSA) attended the Industrial Relations Commission (IRC) on Wednesday 27 January 2016 to represent members working as Medical Records Officers about their personal reclassification applications from ASO1 to ASO2.

matter in dispute is about the operative date on the personal reclassification applications which the PSA had lodged on behalf of members in Flinders Medical Centre (FMC), Repatriation General Hospital (RGH) and Noarlunga Hospital (NH).

A proposal was put forward
by the PSA at the IRC to consider an operative date for PSA members which closer reflects when the reclassifications were lodged rather than the later date SALHN has currently offered to staff. The matter remains unresolved as the Department is considering the proposal.

A future hearing is scheduled for next week in the IRC. PSA members will be kept informed of any further information.

members are encouraged to contact the PSA with any questions or comments on this matter.
