Congratulations again to the incredible ASU members at Geelong Regional Libraries on their amazing victory! Details of their win includes:
• Average pay increases of 3.38%p.a. for entry-level staff
• Withdrawal of all employer claims to reduce conditions
• 20 days' paid gender transition leave p.a.
• Strict limits on use of short-term contracts
• Full adult wages for staff when they complete Year 12, vs when they turn 21
• Free taxi service to take CBD library workers to their parked cars >8pm
• 5pm closure of all libraries on Easter Thursday, Christmas Eve & NYE with full pay for all staff rostered to work later
• And more!
GLRC workers won because they came together, massively grew union membership and activism, and carried out months of successful industrial action. There's power in union!

Nobody deserves to be discriminated against because of who they are, who they love, or what they believe.

All workers should be protected from discrimination equally.

Right now, the Morrison Government have put forward a Religious Discrimination Bill that would undermine important rights enshrined in state laws that provide workers equal protection from discrimination.

This Bill doesn’t protect people from discrimination. It would expose workers – religious or not – to the threat of being sacked because of who they are or who they love.

Equality is union business. We must come together to show the Morrison Government that our community supports a fair, equal and inclusive society for all.

Email your MP now and ask them to oppose these extreme laws - equalityaustralia.org.au/take-action/
