We are very proud to stand by ASU members who are showing resilience, determination and a commitment to collective action despite real challenges.
Workers right across our union are showing these traits, but some deserve a special shout-out and our congratulations.
At Moorabool Shire Council, the industrial action taken by ASU members is being undermined by non-union members of a non-union association. But they haven’t been deterred and are committed to a fair pay rise.
And ASU members are campaigning against unfair enterprise agreements at Burnie and Boroondara city councils. Showing the value of campaigning against sub-stand offers from employers, workers at Manningham City council are waiting on an improved offer after a successful NO campaign.
Workers at Geelong Regional Libraries show determination to improve their conditions despite management’s objection – they will walk off the job tomorrow as their industrial action ramps up.
Workers in the community services sector are campaigning for job security, funding security for the sector and workplace fairness as part of the ASU’s Essential not Expendable campaign. And they are gaining support from whole workplaces and even employers for their agenda.
At VicRoads ASU members continue to grapple with the privatization of this core government service and are still working together in their collective interest.
Every member of our union is important, and we value the contribution each makes to our collective efforts to improve the work-lives of members and the fairness of our communities.
And we are proud to be by your side.
