Landmark case to lift pay for aged care workers by 25% begins26 April 2022
Landmark applications by the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (ANMF) and the Health Services Union (HSU) to lift the wages of aged care workers by 25% commenced in the Fair Work Commission this morning.
The ANMF is requesting the 25% increase on the basis that the work of aged care workers has never been properly valued, and are in fact undervalued. The union is arguing that paying aged care staff wages that genuinely reflect the value of their work, together with mandated safe staffing and 24/7 registered nurses on-site, will ensure more people want to work in the sector.
