Secure work = better support

Community Mental Health Practitioners like Shantell provide the kind of support that changes lives. But the rise in fixed term contracts in the community sector has meant high turnover and more insecurity for both workers and clients.

It's dumb, and it hurts everyone involved.

Good on you! You do an awesome job. I’m new to Geelong and you’ve been such a god send for me and the kiddos. Always helpful and welcoming. Fair pay and a safe workplace are good reasons to stand up and step out!!

Solidarity from WA! Victory to the workers 💪

Long overdue!

Well done. They do a great job, they deserve fair pay and work safety

Solidarity from Melbourne ✊

Good on them. Now, just wondering what the union is doing about the Covid death of one of their members at Serco Mill Park, where another 12 workers are also infected? This workplace has had repeated outbreaks. Please tell us what you are doing to address this?

Poor silly bosses - don't they know? No one ever messes with librarians and comes out unscathed.

Solidarity from The Services Union in Queensland!

💪💪💪

Does anyone know what's led them to strike? Does anyone know what are their main issues?
