This isn't just a photo of of a person with a disability & their carer.

It's a photo of trust, built over years.

Labor mustn't break that bond.

Please, Daniel Andrews, protect disability care.

After two years of uncertainty the Victorian Government has formally announced they will proceed with plans to tender DHHS disability services to the non-government sector.

While extraordinarily disappointing, it was not unexpected. Every other state and territory is or has headed down the same path.

Despite this, HACSU members, through our Protect Disability Care campaign, have won the best disability workforce and quality care protections in Australia.  

In summary we have won:

  •  8 years of protection: wages, conditions and job security
  • 1:1 House Supervisor model protected
  • Classification structures (including complex needs) protected.
  • 29% wage increase over 8 years (6.5% in the first 6 months, 17% in the first 4 years)
  • Up to $15,000 in transfer incentive payments
  • Up to $2,000 in sign-on payments
  • Redundancy packages for a limited number of transferring workers
