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.

CITY OF HOBART REFUSES TO CONTINUE BARGAINING

Following two strong no votes, the City of Hobart General Manager has taken his bat and ball and gone home.

He is refusing to bargain unless members back down on their claims first.

Nick Heath claims a 40% vote in favour of the agreement is enough to stop bargaining. What he has failed to realise is that 50% more employees voted no to his pathetic offer than those who voted yes.

We're asking for job security in Tasmania's largest Council. We're seeking to maintain additional superannuation contributions. And we're seeking a fair pay rise in line with community expectations.

We WILL get them back to the table.

DID YOU KNOW:
The Directors and the General Manager at this Council received combined salary increases in the rage of 16 - 19% last financial year but are only offering 2.5% to their employees; despite budgeting for 3% increases for the next 20 years. Rates in this municipality also increased by 3.25% for rate payers, many of whom are also employees.
