Victory for Direct Care Workers at Moonee Valley City Council

14 March 2024

After an arduous struggle spanning a number of years, justice has finally prevailed for our Direct Care Workers at Moonee Valley City Council.

Workers noticed over a year ago that they were being underpaid. Today, we're thrilled to announce that their tireless advocacy has culminated in a significant victory: 951 hours – an estimated $30,000 or more - awarded to our members in backpay.

This triumph not only rectifies the underpayment issue but also reinforces the power of collective action and the indispensable role of our union in safeguarding workers' rights.

Well done to ASU members for their courage and patience along this journey.
