The ASU is committed to protecting and improving the working conditions of our members.

Over recent months the ASU has met with ASU members at YSAS to get feedback on the proposed changes to the organisation’s operations.

This feedback highlighted discrepancies in the way staff at YSAS are being classified under the Social, Community, Home Care and Disability Services Industry Award by YSAS.

It was discovered that there was no procedure for staff levels to be reviewed. At the ASU’s insistence, YSAS has agreed to allow all staff to submit reasons for a review of their current SCHCADS level in light of their duties and responsibilities.

This one off review submission must be forwarded to HR no later than the Tuesday 30 July 2019.

We advise members to make a submission to this review to make sure you are being properly recognised for the work you do.

ASU delegates, with support from organiser Karrie Bowe, will provide further information about the format of submissions when this information becomes available.
