  • It’s time for a specialist Allied Health Professional Agreement
    South Australia is the only state without a specialist Enterprise Agreement for Allied Health Professionals. Other health professionals, including Nurses, Midwives, and Salaried Medical Officers have their own EA - AHPs now want their own specialist EA to recognise and respect the specialist work they do in keeping South Australians in good health.

It's the greedy govt that allows it to continue, and now there trying to sell it to our kids through funny TV ads while sport is playing, it's like advertising drugs on the television total madness..

  • Fix the crisis in aged care
    We are family members, older Australians, and workers in aged care and we are campaigning so that every Australian can have a dignified life in retirement. We believe that quality care is directly linked to quality jobs. Care workers should have enough time to do their jobs, get a fair wage and be trained to deliver quality care. Aged care should be funded so care workers have enough time to provide quality care and there is transparency and accountability about how public funding is spent.

  • NO Sale of Warrawee, Spurway and Rosstown Residential Aged Care Homes
    This petition draws to the attention of the Council, community concerns about the inadequate community consultation to consider to sell-off of the Glen Eira Residential Aged Care Services, Warrawee, Spurway and Rosstown, particularly as findings of the Aged Care Royal Commission are unlikely before April 2020. We residents request that Council halt all proceedings on the sale of these facilities until such time that Council conducts a transparent, city-wide consultation and evaluation process that engages and involves residents in a review of the Glen Eira City Council Residential Aged Services and their future which will inform Council of the communities support to retain these facilities, and not until after the final report of the Royal Commission. Come to the Council meeting on Tuesday 2 April 2019 at Caulfield Town Hall, Glen Eira Rd & Hawthorn Road, Caulfield VIC

  • Save our mental health services!
    If the Federal Coalition Government fails to immediately commit to fund community mental health programs for at least 3 years and fix the massive funding gap that has caused this crisis – the whole community is going to suffer. Thousands of experienced mental health workers will lose their jobs. Tens of thousands of people with mental health issues will be left without any support and nowhere to go. It’s a crisis, and it’s happening now. Sign the petition and share. We need every signature to call on the Government to fix this crisis. It cannot wait.

  • Support Victorians with disabilities and the people who care for them
    If employers continue to be bound by the current arrangements, they will soon be unable to continue delivering key services. We’ll see large-scale job-losses, loss of expertise, disruption of services to clients and a high potential for reduction in the quality of services. Without this support, Victoria’s disability sector will likely fail to retain the skilled and committed workers required under the NDIS, potentially resulting in widespread market failure across Victoria. We need to see an investment of $46 million over 3 years, to deliver the quality NDIS that people with disabilities so rightly demanded. This represents just 7 cents in every dollar that the Victorian government will contribute to the NDIS in a single year – but the impact will be huge.

  • All staff deserve employer-paid parental leave
    The current system creates inequities within the workforce, and can lead to serious hardship on families experiencing psychological and financial stress. The careers of women and primary carers can also be negatively impacted. "I returned to work at the ANU ten days after giving birth to my son. My family needed the income, but it wasn’t just this – I also needed to secure my next contract. It was important for me that my supervisors were happy with my performance and recommended me for my next contract. This was a very difficult time. I had psychological health problems. I felt guilty about leaving my son, and would try to see him to breastfeed on my lunchbreaks" (Professional staff member at ANU). By adopting employer-paid parental leave for all staff, ANU will keep pace with other universities in the sector who already provide paid parental leave on either a full or pro-rata basis for their staff. It will also help to: • Reduce financial stress on the families of staff who are experiencing loss of their weekly income to care for their children. • Reduce risks to maternal and child health from returning to work early, and support international guidelines on breastfeeding. • Contribute to ANU’s gender equality goals that aims to ensure all staff, regardless of their identity or sexual orientation, can contribute to their child’s wellbeing. Read the open letter to Vice-Chancellor Brian Schmidt from the NTEU Women's Action Network at nteu.org.au/anu/wan.

  • Sack Andrew Bolt
    Australians value the rule of law and justice for victims. And we detest the sexual abuse of children. For these reasons, defending a convicted pedophile is the act of a despicable character who has no place in Australian publications or on Australian TV screens. Rupert Murdoch should be ashamed to employ such a person and help promulgate his disgraceful views. At a very minimum, must be sacked. Now.

  • No Mind Left Behind
    Campus counselling services usually cap the number of sessions offered to individual students each year. As mental health support off-campus isn’t accessible to many students, this locks them out of mental healthcare either entirely or for extended periods. Counselling sessions at universities must be uncapped. Campus counselling services rarely hire enough staff to meet student demand, forcing students to wait weeks or even months to book sessions with no mental healthcare while they wait. Universities must adequately staff counselling services to keep wait times for sessions below two weeks. Some campus counselling services prevent students from booking sessions at all through walk-in only policies. In other services bookings can be made but only in person, not online or over the phone. But for many students with mental ill health or various disabilities, such policies prevent them from accessing sessions at all. Students must be able to book sessions in advance and through accessible methods. At some campus counselling services students have no choice of counsellor, they're stopped from changing counsellors as needed or forced to change counsellors against their wishes, neither of which is conducive to effective mental healthcare. Students must be allowed to choose counsellors according to their needs. Many campus counselling services don’t provide specialist services relevant to students’ needs, such as counsellors trained to support students with experiences of sexual assault, trauma, and psychological conditions other than depression and anxiety. Universities must provide counsellors with training relevant to the mental health issues students are affected by. Universities largely fail to promote campus counselling services to all students. Many promote services inconsistently during peak times like orientation and exams but not all year, and promotion often targets first years but not other students. Universities must do more to promote services and regularly integrate promotion into communications with students.
