We are here to help members of our union, but right now our phone system isn't allowing messages to be left. We are working on the problem but it will take some time.

So If you are trying to contact the ASU, please send us an email at info@asuvictas.com.au

Congratulations to all members of the Greens running in the City of Melbourne for signing the ASU's Local Government Candidate Pledge.

The pledge is a commitment to workers and communities.We're in a recession. People need Council services more than ever, and so Government must be a generous employer.

While other candidates' policies are slashing revenue to levels that would require mass redundancies, our Greens finance policies keep the City of Melbourne's revenue strong while providing significant rate relief for everyone who needs it. That's how we can make this promise: a Greens Council will guarantee that the overall number of jobs at the City of Melbourne will be maintained, that jobs will be secure, that wages and conditions will be strong, and that the right to take collective action will not be undermined.

All eight Greens candidates are proud to sign the ASUVicTas pledge to preserve public services and stand up for secure jobs and good wages, and act with integrity.

Staff at Geelong Regional Libraries are some of the lowest-paid library workers in Victoria. And now GRL management is attempting to use the pandemic to push through a two-year pay freeze and the removal of Saturday and late-night penalty rates.

GRL's CEO - the second-highest paid public library manager in Victoria - thinks she can win staff over by sending them loveheart chocolates.

What a joke! Staff are getting organised through the ASU and won't take these attacks lying down.
