The announcement for the new cleaning contractors is fast approaching with the announcement date set for November 2018.
We know that 4 regions are being merged, with the far south coast merging with southern NSW and far north coast merging with northwest NSW.
This means that if you are in a regional area you could be one of the regions that will see a new contractor take over. If this is so, one of 3 things are possible:
- Your existing contractor wins the contract for the new region
- The other contractor could win the contract, or
- A new player could win it
We know that in some areas of the existing contracts cleaners are being pushed to the edge of their limit, with many reporting that:
Their hours are being reduced across their area
There have been issues replacing equipment in their schools, leading to cleaners spending more time cleaning classrooms and
Full time positions are being replaced with casual cleaners, meaning cleaners don’t know who they’ll be working with each time they come to work.
Cleaners - it’s time to get involved in the campaign to ensure the good, secure jobs you won stay that way.
