HSU calls for Social Work Registration

Your Union, the HSU, working in cooperation with the Australian Association of Social Workers (NSW Branch), has drafted a joint statement calling for the registration of professional social workers by establishing a Social Work Registration Board in NSW.

The sentiments in this draft statement are based on the strong positive feedback your HSU representatives received from HSU Social Worker members in a survey conducted in 2020.

You can read the draft statement at this link.

We would encourage all HSU Social Worker members to provide any feedback on the draft statement by email to publichealth@hsu.asn.au.

The intention of the joint statement is to provide the basis of joint lobbying efforts at the NSW State Parliament.

If you would like to be part of the lobbying to achieve Social Work registration, please email publichealth@hsu.asn.au.

Being an HSU member is a key step to achieving real recognition at work. Encourage your Social Worker colleagues to join the HSU today online at www.hsu.asn.au/join or phone 1300 478 679.
