How we can stop the cuts.

As we move into winter, SCC’s plan to cut your take-home pay is getting a chilly reception.

Removing your paid meal breaks means cutting your take-home pay – by up to 6.5%or $2400 for some workers – and forcing you to work more hours to earn it back.

Meanwhile, non-shift workers are left with a paltry 1.5% wage offer. It is a real wage cut once inflation is taken into account.

Enough is enough. SCC need to listen to the Aged Care Royal Commission and offer real wage rises – not wage cuts.

We need to make SCC listen to reason.

Organisers will be visiting your facility next week with a petition calling on SCC to drop the cuts. If they don’t, we will need to be united to stop them. We’ve done it before and we can do it again.
