Full Text: NZNO and the Department of Corrections' prison health services have embarked on a joint healthy workplaces project. The project recognises care, workplace culture, quality and safety, leadership, skill, team and working tools as important to achieving healthy workplaces. A national group has been formed to start work on the project, with the next step the establishment of seven area groups covering prisons in Christchurch; Otago/Invercargill, Wellington; Whanganui/Manawatu/New Plymouth; Hawke's Bay/Tongariro Rangipo; Waikeria/Springhill; and Auckland/Northland. These groups will be made up of an NZNO organiser, delegates, the health centre manager and team leader health or a senior nurse. Nominations for NZNO delegates will be called shortly.

Hospice negotiations to begin

The bargaining process for the renewal of the hospice multi-employer collective agreement is underway, with nomination forms for the negotiating team sent out early this month. Claim endorsement meetings will be held late this month and early next. NZNO organiser Mike Yeats and Stephanie Thomas will be NZNO's advocates.
