Better Mental Health in August

2019-08-29

TAKE the SURVEY to shape your EBA!

This month we’re continuing our fight for Better Mental Health across Victoria! On September 11th, we’ll be launching the research you took part in earlier in the year at Parliament House. This continued lobbying provides HACSU members with a voice to decision-makers and demonstrates your dedication to improving the sector for all.

The research we undertook with research organisation Per Capita helped to form our submission. This included focus groups with members across the State. We want to congratulate members on your involvement in this and remind you that there’s still more to be done!  Before we launch our research, we wanted to provide members with the opportunity to review our submission to the Royal Commission into Mental Health.

What’s next?

We’re getting out into workplaces to talk about your enterprise agreement. It’s never been more important to be a HACSU member during this time. We need each and every member to respond to our EBA Survey to help us to understand your needs in the next agreement.

It’s really important for us to hear from a variety of members, from different disciplines, jobs and areas to ensure that our claims work for YOU!

Our Lead Industrial Officer Kate Marshall will soon be reviewing the survey to help build our log of claims for your EBA. Here's what Kate had to say about the process: 

"Throughout my time at HACSU, I've been involved in drafting many EBAs. What's most important at this stage of the process is members engaging with our officials. If you think your discipline needs a voice, or your workplace needs a specific clause, get it touch!

We want to win the best outcomes for all members - that's why we do what we do every day!"

If you want us to come out and talk to your colleagues about the benefits of collective bargaining of being a HACSU member – get in touch! hacsu@hacsu.asn.au

We’re working with members at Orygen Youth Health who will soon be launching the largest Youth Prevention and Recovery Care unit in Victoria. Orygen received funding from the latest State Government Budget to build this new unit housing the PARC. HACSU Officials welcome the opportunity to consult around operational and staffing of the new PARC and look forward to working towards the best model of care for consumers and staff.
