πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ IT PAYS TO TAKE A STAND! πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

Members at Derwent Valley Council in Tasmania were willing to walk off the job to get a better deal. As a result, management have returned an improved offer which fixes the issues members were concerned about.

The agreement will now go out to a vote and it is expected that it will be endorsed by employees.

94% of ASU members at Derwent Valley Council, in southern Tasmania, voted to endorse members taking protected industrial action in pursuit of a fair deal in EBA negotiations.

Over the last 24 hours meetings of members overwhelmingly endorsed a 4 hour stop work action for Wednesday morning next week.

Council need to improve their offer and listen to their employees. Workers bills are going up and their wages are just going backwards.

We think its about time they resoloved the long standing underpayment and contract issues for their child care Educators to ensure they are paid the legal minimum rates.

Stay tuned for more!
