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.

The ASU stand in solidarity with the striking members of the United Workers Union at McCormick foods. These workers have now been on strike for five weeks fighting for their first pay rise in five years. In response McCormick foods have put out an enterprise agreement that would have cut their pay by $500. This is what corporate greed looks like.

Last week the workers rejected this shameful offer by over 90%.

McCormick foods have made millions over the past year on the backs of the hard work of their skilled workforce and it’s time they made a fair offer.

One day longer, one day stronger.

This is Johnno, agreeing that only the ASU protects outdoor workers at East Gippsland Shire Council!
He is with Andrea Court our delegate. Andrea has been a member since the first-ever enterprise agreement at the shire. She has negotiated EVERY Agreement since then! What a champion & holder of incredible knowledge. This year, she is negotiating better pay and conditions in the new East Gippsland Shire Council Enterprise Agreement.
Want a better deal at East Gippsland Shire or any other council in Victoria or Tasmania? Then join Andrea & Johnno as members of the ASU here: bit.ly/3fsj3Bu
