Do you want to have a voice in your workplace? Are you interested in the protection and advocacy of workers’ rights? Then why not be a union delegate.
It has been identified that your workplace has areas of low delegate representation. Some areas include Libraries, Leisure, Town Hall, Bundoora golf course, farm and Customer Services.
Unlike other Councils the ASU has multiple delegates working across most areas. Low representation can lead to issues going unresolved, workers’ rights not being enforced and can affect bargaining outcomes.
Without delegates on the ground, it makes it difficult for the union to know what’s happening in the workplace.

What do delegates do?
ASU Delegates are the essential link between the ASU and the membership within each workplace. Effective delegates can identify issues and provide information to the ASU to ensure that members’ rights and conditions are protected.
Delegates can provide representation, support and advice to members as well as building the union through providing information and raising the awareness of union issues with staff. An ASU Delegate is someone who is your representative and is nominated and elected by you.
