The ASU urges members to oppose further privatisation of council-run child care centres. Your Union launched a survey this August for local government child care workers. The survey closes 29 September.
Privatising council child care leads to higher fees and reduced centre hours as new operators focus on profit. In some local government areas, council run child care has disappeared altogether.
The future of affordable council-run child care services is at stake right now. If you work in a local government child care centre or have family, friends who do, please send them a link to the ASU survey.
