That ABC workloads are a problem across the organisation is not news to many ABC staff who feel the brunt of the ABC’s job cuts and restructures every day.

However the CPSU now has substantive data that shows:

  1. Heavy workloads are having a serious impact on the health and safety of ABC staff; and
  2. The ABC is falling short of their health and safety obligations to address the problem.

The CPSU has been presenting the key findings from our national study on ABC workloads to members, and would like to invite you to attend one of these presentations next week. Click here to register.

Coronavirus and the siloed nature of work over the last year and a half has made it difficult for union members to come together – but with more job cuts and restructuring coming down the line, this is an important conversation we need to be having now.

What CPSU members are saying about these sessions:

  • “Seeing this presentation made me realise that my workload is excessive and that it is affecting my health more than I feel comfortable admitting. It also made me realise how normalised this has become in my area and why we need to start calling it out and exercising our power under the health and safety act.”
  • “The information about normalizing heavy workloads was confronting. I don’t remember when working unsafely became normal in my work area but it needs to change.” 
  • “Every ABC manager needs to see this presentation before they restructure and cut more jobs.”
  • “After so many years of feeling powerless to change things, I feel like I have a voice now and I’m not alone.”

Doing more with less in the ABC is no longer an option. Workloads must be fair, reasonable and safe. Click here to register for a session and find out more about how we can reign in excessive ABC workloads.
