As a result of the Parliamentary Inquiry into Abuse in Disability Services, and the DHHS have adopted a new Code of Conduct for Disability Workers. HACSU representatives engaged heavily in the development of the code to make sure it was fair on workers, and we endorse it.
All DHHS employees you should have received your final EBA sign-on bonus this week. The sign-on bonus is $1000 and calculated pro rata for casuals and part time employees.
The DHHS EBA Ballot closed on Wednesday 23 May – 3363 ballots were received. Today we found out that over 97% of DHHS workers voted YES to this EBA – and YES to protecting disability care! This is a huge win for HACSU members who stuck together for two years to fight for a fair deal for disability workers and for the residents that you support.
