Big win for ADHC members in group homes and residential facilities

For more than eight months the PSA has been fighting to make sure all conditions of employment of  ADHC members are transferred with them when they leave the public sector.

After a decision by the Industrial Relations Commission today we are happy to inform all ADHC staff covered by the Crown Employees (FACS) Residential Centre Support Services Staff Award and Crown Employees Ageing, Disability and Homecare NSW Department of FACS (Community Living) Award that the PSA has won the following conditions:

  • Salary Increase from 1 July 2017 and each year thereafter
  • Rostering principles
  • Special paid leave.

Congratulations to all ADHC Staff and a big thank you to our ADHC delegates who made statements as part of our case.

The first tranche of staff from Western NSW; Far West NSW and the Mid North Coast leave the public sector next week. They will be sad to leave, but we hope will gain comfort from knowing their union has won to ensure they transfer with these conditions.

We will continue to be your union and to fight for your rights and entitlements.
