The largest privatisation in NSW history … are you next?

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.

Unions are battling the privatization of New South Wales disability services

Unions are battling the privatization of New South Wales disability services. A forum was hosted by the Public Service Association and the Community and Public Sector Union. “PSA industrial officer Kris Cruden said all other states except NSW were retaining some sort of disability services, but everything in NSW would disappear at the end of June 2018. Ms. Cruden said the Newcastle forum was planned as the first of a series around the state. The forum heard some people, especially those with persuasive advocates, had done well out of the NDIS, but PSA president Kylie McKelvie said a recent ABC 7.30 report about a profoundly disabled Victorian man ending up in prison showed what was happening when things go wrong.”
