As the number of COVID cases continues to rise across the metropolitan area, the Federal Government has now rolled out its Single Site Program across a number of local government areas:
City of Sydney
The Single Site Program is a voluntary scheme to support workers and employers in these areas to work at one workplace and not be financially worse off. A factsheet about how this works can be viewed at this link.
At this stage, the Single Site Program will cover aged care workers who work and live in the listed local government areas. This list may grow over the coming days depending on the case numbers.
Our number one priority is making sure you and your colleagues are safe and supported. If you have any questions about the Single Site Program or any other matter, please contact your local HSU Organiser or Delegate or our HSU Member Services Division on 1300 478 679.
I want to thank you for the work you are doing in keeping our most vulnerable safe. Aged care workers continue to be on the frontline of this pandemic and you all deserve a pay rise!
