Yooralla employees covered by the Yooralla Disability Support Worker Agreement 2017 (EBA) have recently been sent a new version of their employment contract.
Yooralla had previously made the commitment to consult with HACSU industrial advisors, as is required in the EBA, however, when HACSU officials received the new contracts for feedback, we were also informed that the contracts were already in the process of being sent out to employees.
HACSU industrial advisors have reviewed the contracts and found several terms that need further clarification, some parts that are unnecessary, and the contract fails to meet requirements in the EBA.
HACSU is advising all members not to sign the contracts.
At this stage, if your service manager questions why you aren’t signing the contract inform them it is upon advice from HACSU.
HACSU is disappointed that Yooralla continues to make important decisions that affect all employees without proper consultation. HACSU encourages members to raise this issue with all levels of management and to put “Yooralla’s lack of consultation” as an agenda item for your next team meeting.
