Work bans on group home administrative reporting to the Agency including:

  • Completion of vehicle running sheets;
  • Financial audits including finmart;
  • Reporting returns; and
  • Populating spreadsheets or tables relating to group home data.

Tasks specifically excluded from work bans are:

  • Completing purchase card verifications; and
  • Petty cash and petty cash reconciliations.
DC Motion Endorsing Bans

This meeting of state wide Disability Services Delegates vehemently opposes the privatisation of Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC) Services and as a result have lost confidence in the Minister, John Ajaka.We condemn the NSW Government for using the National Disability insurance scheme (NDIS) to disguise its privatisation agenda.The NDIS was introduced to improve choice, funding and quality of services available to people.However, there is no direct connection between the NDIS and the NSW Government ideological decision to privatise all publicly delivered disability and home care services in our state which the Government is driving via the NDIS Enabling Act.This meeting recognises the real distress the Government’s decision has caused families who rely on publicly run disability and home care services.

There is also real distress amongst workers whose employment security, workplace rights and conditions of employment are being sacrificed in the race to privatise.

This meeting of state wide delegates endorses an industrial ban to be placed on the work related to the privatisation of ADHC to be implemented immediately and to run until the NSW Government abandons the privatisation of disability services.
