Person in an audience
Location: Crawley

Join Michael Pegg, Industrial Relations Manager with Jobs Australia, for insights into current industrial issues for the disability sector, the implications for Disability Service Providers, and practical solutions.

Questions for discussion include:

  • What is happening with bargaining for disability services in Victoria and why does it matter to WA?
  • What can WA learn from the proposed implementation of a portable long service leave scheme for community services in Victoria?
  • What’s happening with casualisation of the disability workforce?
  • What are the implications for our sector of the current debate about low wages growth in Australia?
