Medibank to shift 140 staff to part-time

Medibank Private has confirmed about 140 full-time staff members will be shifted to part-time work, as the government-owned health insurer merges with an occupational health services firm.

But a Medibank spokesman says no jobs will be lost as part of a restructure.

“There’s certainly no jobs going today,” spokesman James Connors told AAP.

The Community and Pubic Sector Union said 250 full-time staff had been asked to move to part-time work but Mr Connors said the number was likely to be lower.

“We’re still in consultation and we don’t have a final number,” he said.

“One figure we had was 140. It could be higher but it won’t be anything like 250.”

Mr Connors said Medibank Private was moving full-time staff on to part-time work so more employees were rostered on at retail centres during peak customer periods.

“We’re trying to make our staff more flexible and we want more staff on when members use the centres,” he said.

“We’re not firing people. At the end of this, we’ll be hiring people.”

The union said Medibank Private had asked 250 full-time employees to either accept part-time work or be made redundant.

The ultimatum for full-time workers expired on Wednesday.

“These are radical plans and far more extreme than Australian companies in legitimate financial trouble,” union spokeswoman Nadine Flood said.

Medibank Private, which was established by the Fraser government in 1976, formally merged with Health Services Australia Limited on Wednesday.

The occupational and travel health services firm was established in 1997.

“Rather than just being a private health insurer we’ll be an integrated health service company,” Mr Connors said.

“From today, we’re going to have a private health division and a health services division.”

Medibank Private bought the Wollongong-based health insurer AHM in 2008 for $367 million.
