The Andrews Government has announced they are seeking to privatise Victoria public disability services.
This decision will cut important service choices for people with disabilities and undermine the quality of support for at risk people. In particular, this decision risks disrupting the continuity of support for many people with disabilities currently living in public sector accommodation.
Privatisation will lower wages and conditions for over 5000 already low paid workers, as a result, many staff will be forced to leave the sector.
We need Certainty for Disability
Certainty for job security
Certainty for wages and conditions
Certainty for quality service provision!
