While the Aged Care Royal Commission has called for higher wages, Southern Cross Care want you to work more for less pay.
If they take away your paid meal breaks, you will be forced to either work more hours each week for the same amount of pay or lose around $2400 every year.
Meanwhile their paltry 1.5% wage offer is a real wage cut once inflation is taken into account and, adding insult to injury, they’ve cancelled negotiations meetings trying to dodge accountability for their decision to slash your pay.
Enough is enough. We must take action.
Sign the petition here to stop the cuts and demand Southern Cross Care to reinstate paid meal breaks and offer real wage increases.
Remember, paid meal breaks are an entitlement, and once you lose it, you can’t get it back. If we let SCC get away with it this time, they will come back again for more in the future.
We’re fighting for you, and we need you to get active and stay strong with us. This is the only way to win!
