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.
HACSU and Tipping appeared before the Fair Work Commission yesterday to discuss the backflip by Tipping that has resulted in delays to the EBA. Tipping has conceded that they did change their view after the parties agreed on the application of the Award, stating this was an “error” on their part and the employer has not been intentionally misleading. The employer wants to ensure “sustainability” and “viability” and to this end refuse to agree to include the Award.
The Tipping Foundation has informed HACSU that it won’t stick with what it agreed at the Fair work Commission on 3 February. This means the new Enterprise Agreement will be delayed until the issue is sorted out, the Commission has listed a conference for next Wednesday 22 March 2017.
