Yooralla Service Agreement

Yooralla`s free guide to implementing your NDIS plan contains information on service agreements and all the important steps in implementing your NDIS plan; and how Yooralla can help you with our high quality and flexible services. This agreement applies to members working in Yooralla housing and to individual support services. On the next two pages, you will find a detailed list of our requirements to create a better standard of living and a better level of care as we enter a new era of disability services in Australia. Since the expiry of the agreement, Yooralla`s management has delayed and rejected negotiations beyond the minimum premium. It is time for Yooralla`s management to offer a fair offer. In the absence of reasonable wages and conditions, Yooralla struggles to attract and retain highly skilled and experienced people with disabilities. This means that service delivery will suffer. The insurance style model will give people with disabilities and their families control over the care and support they need. This in turn will create a huge new market for disability services, which will require a more skilled disability workforce.

Thanks to the strong and ongoing campaign of HACSU members, we have managed to achieve a number of improvements, including: an Enterprise Agreement (EBA) is a legally binding agreement between management and staff, negotiated by union members.

Our ambition is focused on improving the standard of living of disabled caregivers, hiring and engaging in the sector, as well as improving professional development and hence the quality of care. The case of equal pay has raised the “minimum wage” from a low base, but disability workers should not be dependent on the minimum. We want to negotiate improvements beyond minimum standards. conditions that promote quality care for residents. Enterprise bargaining allows us to set decent labour standards for workers in the area of disability assistance. Service agreements vary between different providers, but here are the most important titles you can find in a service contract: These benefits must cover all staff, including caretakers for people with disabilities, case managers, residential workers and day and leisure program workers.

However, to ensure that the sector becomes an industry of choice for new workers, we must ensure that workers` rights are protected and that wages are above the minimum to keep experienced workers. We have gained a better standard of living. With our joint efforts, most workers are doing better each year.
