Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC) staff are asking their local candidates in the March 2015 state election to take a pledge to support them in their campaign against privatisation.
The pledge for candidates reads:
I COMMIT TO:
1. Protect ageing, disability and home care services in NSW by ensuring the NSW Government retains a direct role in their delivery.
2. Ensuring clients of Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC) have a genuine choice in their provider, including staying with ADHC.
3. Safeguard jobs, rates of pay, conditions, entitlements and guarantee transfer payments for ADHC staff who move to a private provider, thus guaranteeing the same high standard of care.
4. Support the improvements the NDIS will provide to the ageing, disability and home care sector but reject the NSW Government using the NDIS to privatise the sector.
I HEREBY SOLEMNLY PLEDGE TO HONOUR THESE COMMITMENTS.
