The ASU has been in discussions with your employer over the last twelve months to maintain Council’s role in the delivery of direct care for your community.

Despite this, your Council has decided to tender for the care of new clients.

The ASU remains concerned about your loss of income, the impact of this on redundancies payable and the future of your work opportunities.

We have arranged a series of meetings for Aged and Disability staff at Mornington Peninsula Shire to discuss your employer’s decision.

Due to social distancing, the ASU has arranged several meeting times which we will be conducting via Zoom, some of which will be streamed into Council offices.

The first meeting will be held;

DATE: Tuesday 19 May
TIME: 4pm
ZOOM LINK: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84331267168

The ASU has been working with Councils across the State to maintain Local Government’s role in the delivery of aged care services. We believe that due to vastly better wages and conditions for carers, care is better with Council.

The ASU has sought a delay to the MPSC tender to enable consultation to occur with ASU members and MPSC staff about the impacts of this proposal and to allow us time to impact on future arrangements in your interests.

We look forward to discussing these issues and any others with you at this first meeting or further meetings scheduled for Thursday 21 May (Rosebud Shire Office and Hastings Shire Office) and 25 May (Mornington and Rosebud).
