Your work shouldn't be overshadowed by cleaning

We’ve heard that New Chapter has been treating you like Cinderella by giving you industrial-type deep cleaning tasks each and every shift.

While keeping clients’ residences clean is important, your core responsibilities as a support worker are to assist and support your participants, which should never be overshadowed by cleaning tasks.

We’ve raised concerns with New Chapter and told them that instead of taking advantage of you and directing you to do excessive cleaning jobs, they must value your role as a support worker.

When you participate in a roster, always remember to prioritise participant care. If you can’t complete a deep cleaning task on the tick sheet, document the reasons clearly.

If you follow our advice and encounter any issues, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We’re here to represent you and ensure that New Chapter don’t compromise participant safety for the sake of a clean pantry.

For more information about this or any other industrial matter, members should contact HACSUassist on 1300 880 032 or email or complete our online contact form
