The squeeze on council budgets from rate capping has led to the outsourcing of essential council services, less job security for council workers, and reduced services and infrastructure maintenance in communities across Victoria.

Councils should be able to invest in the services, jobs and skills that will benefit the community, and this requires a sensible discussion about how local services are funded.

We believe that Victorians deserve better. The ASU is fighting for better funding of local government services, secure jobs and fair wage increases because it is important for local government workers and their families, and critically, because we know how important this is for our community.

The ASU is visiting Knox City Council to brief members and discuss how you can get involved in this campaign.

DATE: Wednesday 10 August
TIME: 7am – 8am
VENUE: Knox Operations Centre, 12 Henderson Rd, Knoxfield (Breakfast BBQ provided)
