ASU Members at Zinfra Contracting are about to vote on the taking of Industrial Action in support of their efforts to get an enterprise agreement covering the testers employed there.
Prior to this there has been no collective agreement covering these members. Negotiations have now been going on for over a year.
Recently, the ASU lodged an application with the Fair Work Commission seeking a ballot on a wide range of industrial bans.
In a late development, Zinfra management have come back with an offer of settlement in an attempt to fend off the proposed bans.
This offer will be taken to members soon for their consideration.
Members have repeatedly indicated their willingness to take action in support of their claims and the ASU stands behind them, whichever path they choose.
