Celebrate Equal Week From 30 November!

Social & Communities November 18, 2020

Your next payrise is coming up!

Your pay is about to go up! Do you want to know how much by? Go to:  On 1 December the minimum rates of pay for community and disability workers will increase again.

Union members won Equal Pay back in 2012. This was the first ever successful case for Equal Pay in Australian history.

 This year we won again, saving equal pay for social and community services workers in the Federal Budget

That victory happened because you, social and community service workers and ASU members fought for it and won.

Workers are between $200 and $650 better off every single week thanks to ASU members winning Equal Pay.

You can find out your new minimum hourly rate on our Equal Pay calculator (and see how much of your pay is because ASU members won Equal Pay!)

We’re hosting the world’s biggest online zoom dance party for equal pay – and you, your colleagues and clients are all invited to come and celebrate this historic win.

Back in 2012 ASU members rallied and lobbied for Equal Pay. And we also danced for Equal Pay – holding huge flash mobs outside Parliament House. Now, it’s time to party again.

You won’t want to miss this (dance skills absolutely not required).
