NDIS preparation causes workload pressures for group home staff. Transfer of DHHS Planning and Intake functions to the NDIA. DHHS clarifies DAS staff role in clients’ NDIS service agreements. HACSU members should not participate in e-DINMA trial.
EBA negotiations have been continuing at a very slow pace while HACSUs’ demand the Government come to an agreement to protect member’s ongoing wages and conditions in the event of privatisation. The Government has made no offers to secure an agreement on the issues which has significantly slowed the negotiation process.
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.
