NSW Govt uses NDIS roll out as trojan horse for privatisation of disability services

Family and Community Services NDIS Bulletin 3 (PDF) GOVERNMENT BILL TO RAM THROUGH PRIVATISATION OF SERVICES.

No attempt was made to consult with unions prior to its introduction. The Bill, if passed, may allow for the compulsory forced transfer of ADHC staff to private sector employers without compensation.
