Essential not Expendable

Insecure employment, including fixed-term and casual work, is now rife across the community sector.

ASU members are fighting to make employment conditions in the community sector more secure.

The Essential not Expendable campaign focuses on four pillars that ASU members believe will improve the community sector.

  • Secure employment
  • Workplace fairness
  • Longer finding terms
  • Sector sustainability and reform
