It's time to Shut Down the Sector!
Educators are sick of being stuck!
Educators are leaving the sector in record numbers every week, due to burn-out, workload and low pay. Centres across the country are having to limit enrolments, close rooms and cancel staff leave. Children and families – including our own – are suffering due to the strain.
Educators have had enough!
That’s why this Early Childhood Educators Day, educators are going to SHUT DOWN THE SECTOR!
We need to make sure the new Albanese Government listens to educators, to reform the sector for good.
United Workers Union members are calling for the federal government to urgently outline a plan and timeline to deliver on 3 key priorities:
1 Give us a reason to stay and pay us what we’re worth.
2 Value early learning as part of the education system, just as important as schools.
3 Put children before profit.
This is our chance to tell the Federal Government to respect educators and commit to a plan to fix the early education sector!
On September 7, union members everywhere are going to shut down and take action around the country!
