The Australian Services Union will be holding a rally in Civic Park, Newcastle on Tuesday, 9 October at 11:31 AM.

Once fully rolled-out, the National Disability Insurance Scheme will support around a half-million participants. To meet that need, the disability services workforce will double in size by 2020. Ensuring a quality, professional and sustainable workforce is essential to achieving the goal of delivering real choice and control.

We all know now that:

  • the pricing units don’t reflect the true cost of delivering high quality person centred services;
  • we need greater focus on training and ongoing worker development;
  • a classification structure which recognises the skills required to work with high support needs clients needs to be developed;
  • We want secure jobs with predictable hours for worker security and continuity of support for people with disability.
