The HSU's NSW branch says it will clear the debt generated by its corrupt former leadership within two-and-a-half-years, thanks in part to an aggressive savings strategy and a new recruitment focus in aged care and private health, as it prepares to reveal a substantial donation to the ALP to fight the Coalition's "draconian" attack on unions.
The FWC has granted a CPSU bid to maintain coverage of about 500 office-based NSW Government Home Care employees transferred to a private disability and aged care service, after finding neither the ASU nor the HSU could more effectively represent them.
The FWC has ruled that the Rail Tram & Bus Union is not entitled to represent the industrial interests of members covered by a new agreement for the maintenance contractor serving Fortescue Metals Group's rail operations in the Pilbara.
The FWC has confirmed the MUA's right to represent "waterside workers" employed by the construction contractor for the Darwin Harbour facilities being built as part of INPEX's major Ichthys LNG project.
In the latest stage of the AMWU's long battle to organise workers at high-tech manufacturer ResMed, an FWC full bench has consented to the union changing its rules to extend coverage to non-management employees at the company's Sydney headquarters.
The FWC has for the second time approved an agreement covering the main Sydney Harbour ferry service workforce after dismissing the motivation for a belated scope order bid for masters and engineers as "little more than petty elitism rather than any genuine unfairness".
