On 20th May 2021, the ASU attended an EA meeting and we informed Boroondara City Council their EA timeline was rushed and does not afford opportunity for the parties to try and reach agreement.

The ASU committed to holding meetings with members to seek your feedback and vote on response/offer and then provide feedback to Council at our next meeting on 3rd June 2021 with the aim to reach agreement or as close to one as we could before Council put offer out to the vote.

We requested an additional two meetings to continue the bargaining process and advised Council that if they did not genuinely consider this request then we may have to lodge a bargaining dispute with the Fair Work Commission as we did not feel they were bargaining in good faith.

The additional meetings would be so we can provide feedback to the draft EA document as it is important that we get this document right.

Council have since agreed to an additional meeting which will be held on 9th June 2021.

We will now be holding paid meetings that are approved by Carolyn Terry Executive Manager People, Culture & Development. Please make sure that if you are planning on attending the meeting that you inform you Team Leader.
