FUND THE GAP. MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS!

What We’re Doing

As the NDIS rolls out, the Victorian State Government is removing funding to state mental health services.

This will have a dramatic and devastating impact on the mental health sector. Despite the continuous meetings with the Victorian Government where members have had an opportunity to detail the massive issues and shortfalls of the NDIS for the workforce, the State is yet to act.

1300 Jobs that will be lost in Victoria and services will disappear for 90,000 Victorians.

The ASU is calling on the Andrews’ Government to immediately re-fund state-based Community Mental Health services!

Help us save community mental health in Victoria.

ASU delegates and members from Nillumbik, and ASU staff turning up at tonight’s Council Meeting to show their support for members providing Kerbside Waste Services. Standing up for keeping council jobs in house and no privatisation of waste in Nillumbik!! In the Bin!! 💪

UPDATE: after 3 hours of waiting for the waste management item to come up, and some debate on the issue, Councillors voted 5-2 to proceed with market testing. But hey, the Mayor said our members do such a great job they’ve got nothing to worry about. If only it were so simple, but the fight’s not over. Fair Work here we come. Watch this space comrades...well done to all the members who lasted the distance past 10:30, solidarity!👏👏

Carl Cowie, kicking more jobs to the curb. Not on our watch! Mornington Peninsula shire were happy to see the back of him. Nillumbik ASU members will see him off here too! #kickCarltothecurb
