What the fair work decision means for you
Congratulations to united workers union aged care members!
We won our Work Value Case and direct care workers will get a wage increase
If you are a Care Worker with a Certificate III/IV, the new minimum rate of pay for you will be $28.47
If you are a Care Worker without a certificate, the new minimum rate of pay will be $28.14
If you are a Home Care Worker with a Certificate 3, the new minimum rate of pay for you will be $28.47 (pay point 1) and $29.35 (pay point 2)
If you are a Home Care Worker without a certificate, the new minimum rate of pay for you will be $27.90 (pay point 1) and $28.09 (pay point 2)
ALL aged care workers need a pay rise!
The Fair Work Commission has delayed a decision on awarding aged care pay rises to whole sections of the aged care workforce.
While nurses, AINs, personal care workers and home care workers have been awarded a 15 per cent pay rise, no decision has been made yet on lifestyle workers or aged care support workers.
Any delay to a Fair Work Commission pay rise decision will cause hardship and heartache to hard-working aged care workers.
Worse, the delay in the decision tells workers the Fair Work Commission is open to a different treatment for different types of aged care workers.
The fight to win an aged care pay rise is not over – in our Union, we won’t stand for some workers to be left behind.
Add your voice to this petition and tell the Fair Work Commission that ALL aged care workers need a pay rise!
