On Tuesday the ASU notified CEO Cathy Henderson that ASU members would be implementing a number of work bans, effective from Wednesday 20 April 2022.

You can read a copy of the letter here.

We anticipate an escalation of this action in the coming weeks if management doesn’t improve their offer.

What happens now?

From Wednesday 20 April, all ASU members will be protected in taking any/all of the listed bans.

You cannot be stopped from implementing these bans, or discriminated against for taking them, as long as you are doing what the ban says.

Management might try to pressure you, tell you that you can’t, change policies to prevent you from implementing bans, or make you feel guilty about standing up for your rights. If this happens:

  1. Politely remind them that you have a legal right to do this
  2. Record the date, time, location and what was said and give it to an ASU Delegate
  3. Ask them to support the action because it affects their job too!

Communication is key

Industrial action hinges on two things: participation and communication!

ASU Delegates and Officials have a WhatsApp group that allows instant questions, answers, and updates. If something doesn’t seem right, let them know.

If you’re not sure about something, ask an ASU Delegate or Official!

Remember, only ASU members are protected in taking these bans, so if you know someone who isn’t an ASU member, ask them to support the fight for better pay and conditions by joining today: www.asu.asn.au/ASUJoin.
