DHHS DDSO’s will receive a 3% wage increase this Thursday 18 January 2018. This has been won by HACSU members campaigning to protect disability services. The increase is detailed in the settlement document (click here to view) provided to the HACSU DHHS members at the state-wide meeting on December 19, 2017 and emailed to all members (who have provided HACSU with a valid email address) on the same day.
The Victorian Government announced today they are proceeding to put DHHS services out to tender to the non-government sector. This is an extremely disappointing development and HACSU remains opposed to privatisation.
Our EBA claim contains a wide range of clauses, which improve wages and conditions and seek to professionalise disability services so we can attract and retain workers in the new NDIS environment. We are also negotiating with Government to secure comprehensive protections for workers should the government force privatisation on our industry.
