CPSUNSW Update: ‘We’ll fight this’, Union rejects ugly Northcott plan to cut jobs and wages

‘We’ll fight this’, Union reject ugly Northcott plan to cut jobs and wages – Sept 2019
Northcott has advised the union that it intends to proceed with a proposed restructure of disability services that includes:

  • making the MAR positions redundant and not replacing the role
  • making Team Leader positions redundant and offering existing staff employment as a Service Coordinator on a massively reduced salary
  • moving CARs and DSWs on to Northcott position descriptions, while maintaining the copied state-award conditions

The CPSU NSW is in the process of lodging a dispute with Northcott in relation to the proposed changes.

We strongly advise members to hold off on agreeing to the changes until the dispute is resolved with Northcott.

We will continue to communicate any changes as they arise.

Contact Graydon Welsh on 1300 772 679 or via email for further information and assistance.
