Today, HACSU proudly represents people with disabilities and administrators who are changing the lives of people with disabilities every day.

If you would like to become a member, please visit our online site or if you would like to see the benefits of a membership. This ensures that we transfer services in a safe and consistent manner. It ensures that people with disabilities remain at the centre and that staff are moved on to a level playing field. The disability services sector needs highly qualified and professional support staff to help people with the highest quality with disabilities. HACSU believes that adequate compensation and workers` conditions will attract and retain these workers. Negotiations on the Multi-Employer Disability Services (MEA) agreement are nearing completion. Unions and employer representatives (under jobs Australia)`s leadership are working on this and are in talks with the Victorian government to secure transitional funding to support the new rules.
You are covered by this new multi-employer agreement if you work for one of the following employers: The pay rates of some workers in the social and municipal services sector are gradually increasing under the Fair Work Commission`s pay order. The increase will apply in full until 2020. We monitor how the 5 providers provide services through a seven-year performance and monitoring system. The regime strives to ensure that suppliers meet the highest standards of safety, quality of service and staff development. To view a copy of the agreement, click here: www.fwc.gov.au/documents/documents/agreements/fwa/ae507210.pdf Find out how we transfer public accommodation for the disabled and break services. In interviews and workshops, we have defined the strict conditions for transfer. This process also helped determine the evaluation criteria we used to measure and verify the quality of the suppliers selected to provide services. If you have any questions about your new business contract, please contact HACSU Assist on 9340 4100. But with the support of former Fair Labour Commissioner Julius Roe and a few proactive employers, we were able to develop a fair agreement for our members, which preserves many old requirements for existing workers, as well as new and better conditions. The Victorian Disability Service (NGO) Agreement 2019 (MEA) has been approved by the Fair Work Commission and you have a new enterprise agreement! Your hacsu representatives have worked hard to ensure that you are informed at an early stage after the announcement of the new suppliers and that all elements of the new EBA and the 8-year transaction contract are delivered in full.
