In the course of negotiations for a replacement four-year enterprise agreement (EBA), HACSU industrial advisors identified that the rates of pay for a number of DDSO classifications had fallen below the Modern Award (SCHADS). The reason this has occurred is due to the impact of the Equal Pay Case and the Equal Remuneration Order (ERO), which HACSU won for disability workers in the non-government sector in 2012.
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.
