We the undersigned call on Calvary Public Hospital to respect the cleaners who are keeping us safe through the pandemic – meet with them!
Hospital cleaners are essential workers, who have helped stop the spread of COVID-19 across Canberra. Day in and day out they put themselves on the line to keep our communities safe.
These cleaners deserve and need fair pay and secure work.
Yet in the A.C.T., cleaners at Calvary Public Hospital Bruce are paid less than those at Canberra Hospital, despite performing the same duties. This is because Calvary hasn’t properly funded cleaning services.
Cleaning contractor, Compass Medirest, has been disrespectful throughout negotiations and has only put a 5 cent pay increase on the table.
Tell Calvary to meet with their hospital cleaners and hear their stories.
