CERTAINTY FOR A BETTER DHHS EBA

The full claim can be accessed  here

HACSU has submitted members claims for a new four-year DHHS Enterprise Agreement with negotiations expected to start shortly.

The claims were developed after extensive consultation with members at workplace meetings, delegates forums and through an online survey. Members endorsed the claims at a statewide meeting on 4 August.

You know that quality services depend on a quality workforce. So throughout this EBA campaign HACSU members will be fighting for higher wages, better conditions and recognition for the value of and professionalism of disability support work.
Our demands are:

  • Yearly 5% wage increases – 5% per year plus a 1.5 % top of band increase
  • Higher penalty rates and allowances
  • Better leave arrangements
  • Stronger job security
  • Improved access training and professional development
  • Better career structures in forensic disability and complex sites, including respite
  • Protections for those affected by the roll-out of the NDIS
  • A comprehensive agreement to support members through the closure of Colanda
  • Improvements to consultation and change
  • Preservation of all current conditions

The full claim can be accessed  HERE  and all workplaces will be posted a detailed summary next week.

If we stand united this EBA will deliver positive outcomes for us and those we support.

This will mean campaigning hard so the government has no option but to accept our claims and requires the involvement of all members. 

If you work with someone who isn’t a HACSU member, talk to them and ask them to join. Together we are stronger and together we can win.
