Youth Detention: You won 100% WorkCover!

Posted on May 23, 2017

We just received the good news: you've finally won 100% WorkCover for all Youth Justice workers.

The Director General for DJAG has advised Together this morning that he has approved for 100% WorkCover arrangements to be paid to Youth Justice workers for all sustained injuries from 1 July 2017 and beyond.

This decision is in line with what Together members and Delegates have been lobbying the department and Director General for since 2015. It is also the same outcome that Together members in Corrections won last year.

Congratulations to the Together members who backed this outcome and threw their weight behind it.

Because union members stood together and spoke with one strong voice, injured workers won't be left struggling on reduced wages while they are recovering from their injury.

If you know someone who isn't a member of Together, forward this email to them and ask them to join today.

PS. In case you missed it here is our last update on this issue.
