Bass Coast Council proposed amendments to the code of conduct policy, but these changes were met with dissatisfaction among its members.
In response, the ASU lodged a grievance, advocating for the members’ concerns to be acknowledged and resolved. Thanks to the active engagement of the members who voiced their concerns and provided a clear rationale for their position, as a result, a more favourable outcome was achieved.
This collaborative effort led to an improved and more equitable policy that better addressed the needs and preferences of the Council’s members as well as satisfying Councils requirements. This demonstrates the vital role that unions play in safeguarding the rights and interests of our members at Bass Coast Council.
“ With the support from the ASU, we were successful in achieving a positive outcome to the policy which we were hoping for” Delegate Brendan Hill – Wonthaggi Depot.
