During our recent round of bargaining, members at Barwon Asset Solutions fought hard and won some significant improvements in their Enterprise Agreement.
One of the key wins was a move to a 9 day fortnight. And members at other water authorities who have been bargaining recently will appreciate just how hard it is to get this claim over the line.
The agreement was finally approved by the Fair Work Commission, and came into effect in mid-March.
But management had not planned for the implementation of these new working arrangements, despite having had six months to prepare.
The ASU is working with members at Barwon Asset Solutions to make sure that the gains won by members through the enterprise agreement are delivered in full by management.
Our members at Barwon Asset Solutions have shown yet again, that they will not take a backwards step when it comes to standing up for their rights.
