All ANMF Health and Safety Reps (HSRs) are invited to the 2015 ANMF (Vic Branch) Annual Delegates Conference which will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on Thursday 25 and Friday 26 June.
The ANMF (Vic Branch) has combined the Annual Delegates Conference with the Annual Health and Safety Rep Conference in 2015 to create a two day conference that focuses on exploring occupational health and safety issues for nurses and midwives, with all delegates (HSRs and Job Reps alike) invited to join us for a dinner Thursday evening.
The ANMF will be presenting the HSR of the Year Award at the conference.
Online nominations are now open. Nominations close at 5pm, Friday 29 May.
This valuable conference is free to attend, with complementary accommodation for twin/triple share only. Single accommodation is available at an additional cost.
Attendance at this conference will also contribute towards your continuing professional development (CPD).
Submitting, debating and voting on motions
ANMF (Vic Branch) policy states that only Job Representatives are eligible to submit, debate and vote on motions. Although invited to attend the conference, Health and Safety Representatives are not eligible to submit, debate or vote at the 2015 conference.
You might like to become a Job Representative so you can submit, debate and vote on motions at next year’s conference.

Paid leave entitlement
The ANMF Annual Delegates conference is an ACTU/TUTA authorised union education and training activity. This enables public sector HSRs to apply for access to paid union training leave to attend this conference in accordance with the public sector enterprise agreements.
For HSRs employed in other areas, you need to request paid leave in accordance with your workplace enterprise agreements or other workplace agreement. If you do not have access to paid leave in an enterprise agreement, or by local arrangement, and paid leave is not granted by your employer, ANMF (Vic Branch) policy provides a subsidy for loss of pay if you are granted leave without pay to attend and your income is reduced accordingly. To qualify for this subsidy, you need to provide a copy of your roster for the affected fortnight that indicates your leave without pay on your usual rostered shifts.
