Whilst more than 50 Council Officers (mostly CEO’s & Directors) earn as much as or more than the Premier, pay increases for local government workers are at an all-time low, with most hovering around or below CPI.
This issue is not confined to Local Government with wage growth stagnating across the country in the last few years. Even the Governor of the Reserve Bank said recently that a return to a world where wage increases start “with a 3 rather than a 2 is both possible and desirable”.
The ASU together with other unions are campaigning to change the rules so that working people have more secure jobs and better pay.
We need a pay rise and secure work. We need to change the rules to give all working people the basic rights they need to improve their living standards.
Be part of the movement for change and join us and other unions:
23 October from 10:30-12:30
Victorian Trades Hall, 54 Victoria St, Carlton
The Change the Rules campaign is a once in a generation fight that we must win to ensure that we secure our working conditions and protect them for our children and future generations.
