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.

The ASUVicTas says services could be affected and jobs lost at regional VicRoads branches, including Sale, if the outsourcing or part-privatisation of the service goes ahead.

Abolishing compulsory superannuation for low-income workers would be a disaster for Tasmania

More than 100,000 Tasmanian workers would lose $350 million a year in retirement savings and be slugged with an extra $101 million in personal tax

This tax grab by the Morrison Government, to prop up its own budget bottom line, is coming at the expense of hardworking Tasmanians’ retirement savings.

Let’s keep super universal, and make sure all hardworking Australians can have a decent retirement.

What a total disgrace Scomo and your so called members if you allow this to go thru

I can't believe it's even being considered..😡😡😡

Unbelievable.

And yesterday another Liberal Senator called superannuation a ‘cancer’, like providing workers with dignity and comfort in retirement is a disease. Less ideology here would be good, wouldn’t it?
