The ASU has received notification of major change to the Home & Community Care Program for Younger People (HCCPYP) and Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP)
It is proposed that Council undertake an Expression of Interest and recommend a new provider to the Federal Government for several of Council’s CHSP in-home care services (Domestic Assistance, Personal Care, Respite Care, Social Support Individual, Home Modifications and Property Maintenance).
According to the notice, it is anticipated that the majority, if not all, of Council’s in-home support workforce, will transfer to a new CHSP provider rendering Council unable to deliver in-home HACCPYP services through an internal workforce.
In the document provided to ASU, Council outlines its consultation timeframe. Consultation and Feedback Period ends 16 October 2020, but to allow time for ASU to hold discussions with Council; ASU seeks members feedback on the proposal by 30 September 2020.
In accordance with your Enterprise Agreement, employees impacted by the proposed change are entitled to consultation, and to have their views represented by their Union.
Council is required to give prompt consideration to matters raised by the employees concerning the changes.
The ASU will hold a meeting for impacted members Council has authorised paid time or release from duty to those impacted by the change.
