You probably know Communities Tasmania advised everyone they were moving part of their out of home care service over to Baptcare.
We and our union comrades were surprised by this announcement because nothing had been run by us beforehand.
HACSU and CSPU met with them to outline several issues of concern including the impact on current employees, potential loss of positions and why services can’t be delivered by the agency.
We also asked for more detailed information about a description of the programs being outsourced and the current cost of the service, and we’re sure there’ll be plenty more questions that will need answering.
As the consultation process progresses, and we receive information, we’ll keep you updated.
At this time, there will be no change to any current service or support.
