Following on from last week’s joint ASU –Professionals Australia meetings with members, the ASU has taken back the feedback and met further with management in an attempt to improve their offer.
Management has not improved the quantum of the offer but has agreed to front-load the quantum payments. Their proposal is now to have a 3% payment, dated 1 November 2019 and a further .75% increase in January 2021. No changes have been made to the operative date, which remains until June 2021. This at least addresses the wide spread request from members to put the bulk of the increase at the start of the agreement.
There having been an overwhelming vote in favour of accepting the offer (around 70% of members) who attended the meetings), we now think it is time that it is put to a formal vote for acceptance or rejection.
Management will be seeking their own feedback early next week and following that they propose to put the agreement out to vote.
