The ASU has been advised of a meeting with depot staff yesterday informing them that they are considered/align with construction workers and as a result are directing that staff be vaccinated.
The ASU has sought urgent advice about this, as Benalla have not shared this information or the details of their decision to the union office nor delegates. This is despite Benalla meeting with delegates on Monday and calling an ASU Organiser Jeff Dingli on Tuesday afternoon. It is unclear why the depot meeting was not mentioned to either union delegates or officials.
The ASU contacted Benalla this morning to advise that consultation and communication needs to occur. In the meantime, the ASU has not agreed to anything and is in the process of seeking clarification for the state government.
We will provide further updates as they arise.
