NDIS workers provide invaluable support to over 500,000 people living with a disability. But flaws in the system make it difficult to recruit and retain workers.

We believe we can only achieve the best NDIS when workers are properly valued. That's why Australian Services Union members are working together to win:

✓ Fair pay and working conditions for NDIS workers
✓ Meaningful careers and professional development 
✓ Recognition of our skills and expertise 
✓ Secure jobs with stable and predictable working hours

"There needs to be more focus on supporting workers under the NDIS Code. For me, that means better funding for training opportunities and career paths in the sector.”
- Rachel Tausia, ASU Member and Disability Support Worker for 24 years
