Members have now endorsed a log of claims (LOC) and have advised the ASU they wish to commence negotiations for a new enterprise agreement.

The ASU have today written to Bethany management with a copy of the claims and advised that we wish to commence bargaining. You can download the LOC for your reference.

You should receive a Notice of Employee Representational Rights from Bethany management in the next 14 days. It is important to note that as an ASU member you are automatically represented by ASU so you do not need to nominate a representative.

Your bargaining representatives at the negotiations will be Delegates, Mark Vincent, Katrina Crothers and Stephen Burton, along with ASU Organiser, Joanne McEvoy.

The current Bethany enterprise agreement has a nominal expiry date of 30 June 2017. This agreement remains in place until a new one is approved by the Fair Work Commission.

Your LOC is put together with the intention of improving your conditions and entitlements at Bethany but this can only be achieved by workers standing collectively and being a part of the union.  This is your agreement that will set your wages and conditions for the next 3 years.
