Award changes still on Guild agenda

The Pharmacy Guild of Australia is continuing to sound out senior members of the Federal government to seek changes to the Pharmacy Industry Award (PIA) 2010.

More flexibility with penalty rates is needed to make the award workable for pharmacy’s who operate for extended hours, says  Paul Sinclair, President of the Pharmacy Guild of Australia (NSW).

Writing in his column in the March edition of the NSW branch ‘Guild Bulletin’, Mr Sinclair warns members that “the final transitional arrangements in the PIA will be completed by 30 June&rdquo
