Health workers meet with Gibson
STAFF at the Gympie Hospital are still concerned about their pays.
Member for Gympie David Gibson met with nurses this week to discuss the problem.
He said yesterday was the sixth pay cycle in the 12-week debacle and hospital staff still aren't sure if their pays are accurate.
Unions have said almost everyone working for Queensland Health (QH) at the Gympie Hospital will have been affected in some way by the failed $40 million payroll system which has either mis-paid, not paid, paid too much or not rolled over entitlements.
Mr Gibson said with so many mistakes and corrections staff just didn't know whether they owed money or were owed money.
Mr Gibson said QH had tried to fix the problem and given people money and adjustments but some didn't know what pay cycle the adjustments were for.
And some staff are not confident everything will be up to date by the end of the financial year.
“I don't have any confidence in the ability of this Labor Government to fix the problem in the near future,” he said.
“This government is asleep at the wheel. They should never have allowed (the new system) to go live when they did.
“How incredibly fortunate...that we have committed staff, and despite ongoing pay problems they are committed to the health of the Gympie community.”
