ASU delegates and officials have continued to engage with Bethany to resolve the outstanding issues for your new Enterprise Agreement (EA).

In the most recent exchanges purchased leave has been discussed in the context of bargaining. It has also come up due to the recent responses from Bethany to members’ applications to access purchased leave for the year ahead.

Members have reported that many purchased leave applications have been denied by Bethany – either partially or in full.

The ASU wants to hear from any Bethany staff that have lodged an application, like a mini-audit, to help inform the next steps the union will take, in the EA process.

Please complete our quick survey here.

Your responses help us get better outcomes for members! Please share the survey with others. No identifying information will be shared beyond the union office. Thanks in advance for your time, we’ll keep members updated about next steps!

As always, the ASU is by your side. Know someone who isn’t a member? Ask them to join online at

Don’t forget the ASU recruitment competition is underway until September, $500 is up for grabs for the member who recruits the most new people.
