During the translation process, one member shares their story!
- Created on Friday, 21 December 2012 13:28
It is important to share experiences in order to grow together, through this translation process and become united in our approach as union members. To do this, one generous ASU member has shared her experience in negotiating her pay level with us. This highlights for us a process that was used, what to possibly expect if you were to do this yourself, her own personal motivations, where to access useful information, and her outcome.
We hope this is inspiring and helpful for your own journey and that this assists in empowering you to do this journey using your own skills and ability and believe in yourself. If you do choose to negotiate your own pay level in relation to the new award, then you can know you are supported by the ASU members in your process.
