Take Home Pay Orders – Ability Options

The CPSU NSW has been meeting with members to provide further information on Take Home Pay Orders. The Fair Work Act provides protection of worker’s pay rates by way of a Take Home Pay Order.

The CPSU NSW can ensure your pay is protected by pursuing a case for members who find their pay is reduced as a result of the expiry of the copied-State awards and transition to the SCHADS Award. Your pay includes your salary or your base rate of pay including allowances, penalty rates currently paid.

The CPSU NSW advises members to look at their pay slips both before and after the transition  to see if there has been a reduction in pay. There must be an actual reduction in take home pay before a case can be made.

As a member of the CPSU NSW you are a member of a strong union that will take action to protect your pay.

The CPSU NSW can only represent CPSU NSW members in a case for a take home pay order. Its important that you are a CPSU NSW member and that tell your fellow disability workers to join the CPSU NSW.

It’s in disability workers best interests to join the CPSU NSW and be represented by a strong union that is prepared to act to protect your pay in such a critical time of change.

The CPSU NSW will continue do everything we can to protect and promote the employment interests of disability services staff in NSW.

For further information, contact the CPSU NSW on 1300 772 679 and ask to speak with one of our dedicated disability services staff.
