Western Sydney Workers Say Save Equal Pay

Workers across Western Sydney are part of a campaign to save 12,000 community sector jobs. ASU members are leading the campaign to save jobs, save services and Save Equal Pay.

Frontline community workers are essential workers who have supported vulnerable people through a year of fires, floods, drought, a global pandemic and now a recession.

The Sydney Morning Herald is reporting that “Community service organisations will be unable to meet unprecedented demand caused by the coronavirus pandemic due to a looming funding shortfall of up to 20 percent.”

Research shows that 12,000 jobs community sector jobs are at risk if the government walks away from fair funding.

The Federal Government can fix this in their October Budget.
