Possible pay cut and you’re the last to know!

You may have received recent communication from your employer, Aspire Hub, notifying that they have completed a review of the award classification of Aspire Hub NDIS activities and determined that Aspire Hub NDIS employees will be changed to the Home Care classification of the Social, Community, Home Care and Disability Services Industry Award 2010 (SCHADS) commencing Monday, 24 October 2022.

What does this mean?

The work you perform determines which classification of the Social, Community, Home Care and Disability Services Industry Award 2010 (SCHADS) applies. It is our union’s experience that most members working for organisations such as Aspire Hub perform work that comes under the broad term of Disability Support work.

The important difference is that the rates of pay that Home Care workers are paid is much less than Disability Support workers are paid.

We know that NDIS Client packages are funded for disability support work.

So, it looks like your employer is getting ready to increase their profits and potentially cut your pay!

What should you do if your pay is potentially being cut?

The first thing you should do is ask for a copy of the review so you can see how Aspire Hub has reached the conclusion that you are being paid too much.

Tell Aspire Hub that you deserve to be paid as a disability Support Worker.

Tell the Services Union that you want to stand up for your pay.
