Directly employ Victorian school cleaners!

Children deserve a clean and healthy learning environment, and cleaners deserve jobs they can count on.

The pandemic has made it clear, now is the time for the Victorian Government to take the next step and directly employ our school cleaners so they have the resources and time to do their job, and the secure, safe jobs they deserve.

Why is this important?

School cleaners have done everything asked of them during the pandemic to keep schools clean and healthy. But under the current contracting system they are underpaid and undervalued.

In order to keep schools clean and safe cleaners need:
• more time to do the job
• decent equipment to do the job
• a job they can count on
• respect and fair pay

This is why they should be directly employed by the State Government. Our children deserve Victorian Government cleaners.
