DHS have written to HACSU advising they are changing their Schedule C Discipline policy and will implement the changes in February.
HACSU has requested a complete track changed document and a meeting to discuss DHS changes however so far DHS have failed to provide a copy of all their changes and failed to commit to meeting with HACSU.
HACSU has positively engaged in many policy discussions with the DHS to ensure that internal DHS policy aligns with your enterprise agreement rights. The failure by DHS to commit to genuine and open discussion with HACSU about changes that may impact your rights is unhelpful and unnecessarily obstructive.
Your enterprise agreement sets out your rights in a Schedule C process and anything in an internal DHS policy that does not mirror these rights is invalid.
