WHERE DO I FIND THE RELEVANT PROVISIONS IN MY MECA

Schedule 10 (pages 76 to 82 of your MECA – see link).

What is Schedule 10?

Schedule 10 is found on page 76 of your MECA and includes the new rostering rules which apply to those rosters listed in the table.

How do I know whether my work is affected by Schedule 10?

Not all rosters are covered by Schedule 10. Take a look at the rosters listed in the table – if your roster is listed then it is covered by Schedule 10.

What are the limits on days and nights specified in the schedule?

In short, no employee shall work more than 10 consecutive days and no employee shall work more than 4 consecutive nights. For more detail, please read Schedule 10 in its entirety.

Whose responsibility is it to develop the Safer Rosters for each run?

It is the responsibility of the DHBs. However, we are encouraging members on the affected rosters to start looking at how these new rosters might look. If you need any assistance please contact your local delegate or the RDA office.
