Huge win for home support workers

The Council of Trade Unions is celebrating a huge win secured by union members who support people in their homes.

Members of the PSA and E tū will finally be paid fairly. “These people do incredible work supporting members of our community to stay in their homes and at the same time receive the care they need,” CTU President Richard Wagstaff said.

“These working people will now be paid for the time it takes them to travel between the people they are caring for – as should have always been the case. From now on, all home support workers, regardless of who their employer is will be have a much better deal at work,”

“This win has been secured because these working people were determined to achieve fairness at work. They are testament to what can be achieved when we work together in union,” Wagstaff said.
