HACSU is the only specialist union for the disability, mental health, and drug and alcohol services in Victoria.
HACSU believe that though proper remuneration and conditions for staff, the mental health, disability services, and drug and alcohol sectors will attract and retain the best possible workers, and thus provide the best quality services.
HACSU campaigns not only for industrial outcomes for workers but for the improved funding, resourcing and services for the Victoria disability and mental health sectors.
EBA negotiations have been continuing at a very slow pace while HACSUs’ demand the Government come to an agreement to protect member’s ongoing wages and conditions in the event of privatisation. The Government has made no offers to secure an agreement on the issues which has significantly slowed the negotiation process.
The department advised HACSU that due to a fault in its SAP system 154 DAS employees who are on higher duties from 25 June – 8 July and receive commuted allowance and penalties were going to be underpaid in pay period 1 [this coming pay].
