TELL THE FAIR WORK COMMISSION ALL AGED CARE WORKERS NEED A PAY RISE!

TELL THE COMMISSION: 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.

Add your voice to this petition and tell the Fair Work Commission:

All aged care workers need a pay rise. 

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?

Aged care workers know it takes a dedicated team on every shift and in in every role to provide care for elderly in their homes and in facilities.

Lifestyle, laundry, cleaning, domestic work and catering are essential to delivering the quality care residents and home care clients need.

More than 70 aged care workers gave evidence about why all aged care workers need a pay rise.

During the two years this case has taken, workers have been working their guts out keeping aged care and home care running during a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic.

Aged Care work has been historically undervalued, and low wages have failed to keep pace with cost-of-living increases over the years.

The fight to win an aged care pay rise is not over, and aged care workers will not stand for some workers to be left behind.
