Lachlan Marshall is a new ASU delegate but long-time supporter of the trade union movement. He has been working in the disability and education sectors for over ten years, so he has experience of the conditions faced by workers and disabled people in the sector. He currently works at the Brotherhood of St Laurence. Cost-cutting in the NDIS is stripping vital support from disabled people and putting downward pressure on workers’ pay and conditions.
Lachlan is part of a campaign called Fairer NDIS for All, a coalition of disabled people, disability workers and supporters that aims to stop the Liberal Government from introducing independent assessments for NDIS participants.
“I believe that we in Victoria have an opportunity to set a world standard disability sector that has secure jobs with better conditions and training at its heart.”
“Encourage your colleagues to join the mighty ASU in support of a better working life,” Lachlan said.
