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.
