It's no secret that today's another hot one in Victoria and Tasmania, with temperatures in the 30s and even up into the 40s in some parts.

Hot weather affects everyone, but it has the biggest impact on outdoor workers.

The ASU has resources in staying safe while working in heat that you can check out here: www.asuvictas.com.au/working-in-heat-2/

Fantastic result on the EA NO VOTE for ASU Members at Moira - the clear majority voted NO and rejected the offer from the Moira Shire Council EA.

Workers at Moira sacrificed the last 4 years and this time around they deserve better!

Well done to the great team of Moira delegates, members, and the ASU bargaining team and elected officials. We love your work! 👍💪🙌
