Employers are looking to attack our conditions – reducing sleepovers and changing on-call. The Social, Community, Home Care and Disability Services Industry Award sets out the minimum conditions for work in our sector. It is currently under review by the Fair Work Commission and employers are arguing for reducing sleepover entitlements, changing how on-call works and making it easier to change and cut hours for part-time workers.
We are fighting to ensure that our Award conditions go forward, not backwards.
We need members to tell their stories about why good sleepover and on-call provisions are important for safe workplaces, work / life balance, and quality services.
