We don’t only fight for wages and conditions. We fight for better mental health services.
HACSU recognises that quality service provision comes from the sector as a whole. That’s why HACSU represents everyone who works in mental health, including nurses, health professionals, admin and clerical workers, consumer / carer consultants and the peer workforce.
HACSU was formed over 100 years ago as the union for workers in the historic mental asylums. Over time this psychiatry has been recognised as a specialist profession and workers have stood together as a union to maintain working conditions specific to mental health.
As a specialist union, HACSU is able to provide specific knowledge and services to achieve the best outcomes for workers, consumers and the broader community.
