You may have seen news reports about workers in the Early Childhood Education and Care sector going on strike in September.

That strike is in the private and not-for-profit sectors of our industry.

Those educators are members of the United Workers Union – and are covered by a different set of workplace conditions and a different Award.

We offer our support to our colleagues and wish them well. (for more information see the website Big Steps)

BUT – we will be contacting you soon about how YOU can help make Council Services the best they can be.

If you have any questions contact USU Childcare Organiser Sue Kealy at or 1300 136 604.
