Around 1,000 disability service workers followed the one-day strike, and over 500 participated in a Sydney meeting then marched to the state parliament.The PSA “is working with delegates in ADHC to combat the unfair and unjust transfer package, and almost useless protections unilaterally forced upon our members. We must continue to fight for the protection of jobs, pay, conditions and a government safety net for people with disability. We believe the privatization of all government disability services will reduce the quality and availability of care and lead to increases in cost for people in supported accommodation. It is imperative the Government remains a provider of disability services to ensure no-one is left without the care they need.
