Bargaining for a new Enterprise Agreement is set to commence next week. As an ASU member, you are automatically represented by the ASU in this process. Please let us know your priorities by completing this short, confidential survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/C55L8Z9.
The results will help the ASU bargaining group come up with a log of claims that is relevant to you and across South Gippsland Shire Council.
Local Government workers have been facing new challenges over the last couple of years including an increase in extreme weather events and the global pandemic. There are also opportunities to improve conditions arising from the new Gender Equality Act and increase job security arising from the new Local Government Act.
In addition, a VAGO report last year identified that 1 in 4 respondents to a survey of local government workers had experienced workplace sexual harassment in the previous year. Sexual Harassment in Local Government | Victorian Auditor-General’s Office
This is our chance to get new clauses into your Enterprise Agreement to address these important issues and protect the things in life that matter – your jobs, income, families, community and health, safety and wellbeing.
