Right now the Australian Services Union alongside Homelessness Australia is campaigning to ensure funding for Equal Pay in Housing and Homelessness is guaranteed past July.
We’re holding an urgent online briefing for members and workers in housing and homelessness services on March 16 at 12:30pm AEDT.
Currently, the Federal Government has no plan for funding Equal Pay in housing and homelessness past July this year. This could mean job losses and services in the sector, at a time when your work is more critical than ever.
Together we have fought hard to have our work valued and recognised.
We fought and won Equal Pay in 2012
We won AGAIN in 2020
And now we need to fight once more. We’ve seen that we are powerful when we come together and we can win this time too.
Don’t Close the Door – Save Homelessness Services NOW!
The federal government have ALREADY made the decision to lift base funding for the Department of Social Services Grants to cover the Equal Remuneration Order (ERO). But this excludes housing and homelessness.
Now we need to make sure that this applies to housing and homelessness as well so that no job is left out or door closed.
