ASU members are calling for a fair wage increase for community and disability workers at the Fair Work Commission.
We are calling for Governments to support our call and fund the wage increase.
The cost of living has skyrocketed and our pay needs to keep up. Everything is going up except our wages.
Frontline workers in the community and disability sector have carried Australia through the pandemic and supported communities in responding to fires, floods, and drought. We have been in higher demand and under more pressure than ever supporting some of the most vulnerable people in our community.
We deserve a decent pay rise to value the work we do.
