The NWU sent out a release today, May 25, 2020, on an upcoming meeting regarding the workplace issues at St Jude Hospital:

Senator the Honourable Mary Isaac, Minister for Health and Wellness will meet with employees of St Jude Hospital along with the leadership of the National Workers Union (NWU) on Friday, May 29, 2020, at 11 am.

This recommendation was agreed upon at a joint meeting held Friday, May 22, 2020, between representatives of the St Jude Hospital board of directors, shop stewards and the leadership of the National Workers Union. 

During that meeting, the National Workers Union presented a petition signed by 100 employees calling for the removal of Human Resource Director Mr Andrew Piltie. The petition detailed a number of industrial atrocities which can no longer be tolerated by the employees.

It is expected that the employees will be given an opportunity to be heard without any form of intimidation."
