Members met for the inaugural SACS campaign committee meeting on 13 November and discussed concerns around secure work and other campaign priorities. Members were keen to hold a second campaign meeting before 2019 is out, as a call to action to save Equal Pay and sector funding.
The Federal Government is offering contracts that do not include an Equal Pay component, however employers will be legally bound to pay the rates. This is the Federal Government’s way of cutting funding by stealth, with potential losses of 30-40% of federal funding. Equal Pay is here to stay! And not at the cost of secure jobs or quality services. Come along to get informed and involved in the plan for the year ahead.
