DON’T CUT AGED CARE – KEEP IT COUNCIL

 

Council home carers’ jobs are under threat. For several years there has been funding uncertainty. Employment insecurity takes its toll and despite funding extensions many carers in Councils are doing it tough, with some Councils seeking to reduce carers minimum hours.

The ASU has been working with members to defend their jobs in Councils including at Moonee Valley, Maribyrnong and Hobson’s Bay, while working to gain support for our goal of maintaining Council delivered aged care from Local and State Government and Federal MPs.

Right now ,we need you to support ASU members in Maribyrnong and Hobsons’ Bay municipalities by sending a letter to their Councillors.
Send a letter to Maribyrnong Councillors
Send a letter to Hobsons Bay Councillors

Everyone has an older relative in their life that needs their support at some point. For years Councils have helped families support their elderly to remain in their homes. If you have a story about the value of Council care that your family members have received contact us or register your support below.

We’ll be taking this issue into the Federal election campaign to make sure the community knows that high quality Council provided care is at risk.

Rate capping makes it hard for local government workers to get fair pay increases and threatens the services Victorians rely on every day. ASU members at Darebin City Council and Gannawarra Shire are just some of the local government workers calling on the Victorian Government to change the rules on rate capping.
