ABOUT US

The Australian Services Union has members in diverse industries: united for a stronger voice for workers.

ASU members work across local government, social and community services, water and statutory authorities like Parks Victoria and VicRoads, energy, transport, shipping, travel, info tech and, in Tasmania, airlines and clerical/administration.

We are a union for members that deliver services Australia depends on every day.

The ASU protects, promotes and improves the working conditions and entitlements of our members.

We help you and your co-workers deal with issues as they arise at your workplace – either individually or as a group – and campaign to improve the conditions for workers.  We provide workplace information, services and individual support to members.

We are not-for-profit, member-owned and run.  We exist only for the benefit of our members.

The ASU has local representation and delegates across Tasmania and Victoria, backed up by full-time officials of the Union.

ASU delegates and members from Nillumbik, and ASU staff turning up at tonight’s Council Meeting to show their support for members providing Kerbside Waste Services. Standing up for keeping council jobs in house and no privatisation of waste in Nillumbik!! In the Bin!! 💪

UPDATE: after 3 hours of waiting for the waste management item to come up, and some debate on the issue, Councillors voted 5-2 to proceed with market testing. But hey, the Mayor said our members do such a great job they’ve got nothing to worry about. If only it were so simple, but the fight’s not over. Fair Work here we come. Watch this space comrades...well done to all the members who lasted the distance past 10:30, solidarity!👏👏
