Council have advised us that the government has decided on the new providers that have been appointed for the services as follows:

  • The Home and Community Care Younger Persons Program (HACCPYP) will be transitioned to Mecwacare.
  • The Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) will be transitioned to Benetas.

We also understand that Council met with staff on May 26 to inform them of the above and provide redeployment, outplacement and offer some additional training.

We know this would be a difficult time for affected members so if you have any questions or concerns about your rights and entitlements, please contact us so we can make sure the obligations of Council are being followed as per your enterprise agreement entitlements.
