HACSU is one of Tasmania’s largest and oldest unions, established in 1911, representing members employed across the health and community services industries.
HACSU members are employed at more than 500 worksites across the State.
HACSU’s main aim is to improve the working lives of members by negotiating improvements in wages and conditions and protecting workers’ rights.
HACSU encourages members to have a genuine voice in their workplace and exercise real control of issues that affect their working lives.
Members’ experience shows that many issues can only be satisfactorily resolved when members themselves come together as a group to support each other. This involvement of members working together is helped through the election of worksite representatives, such as delegates, committees and Sub-Branch executives.
