The article reports that the Queensland Health (QH) was taken to task by the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission (QIRC) following announcements of major job losses and other significant changes by Hospital and Health Services (HHSs). According to termination change and redundancy (TCR) provisions, QH and HHS need to consult with the Queensland Nurses Union (QNU) before making any significant change; however, HHS failed to abide by this which prompted QNU to seek assistance from QIRC.
