The proposed CAFS EA that attempted to dramatically cut back key working entitlements has been emphatically voted down.

Most telling, Cafs still refuses after concerted attempts to divulge the breakdown of the vote.

In no uncertain terms, members stated their core entitlements such as personal leave, long service and redundancy are not up for negotiation. The sheer audacity of CAFS, to attempt to strip back these rights was soundly rejected. Similarly rebuffed were its cynical efforts to enshrine a culture that threatens working lives and welfare.

CAFS’ credibility, its claim to operate under the banner of “value-based organisation” lies in shreds. In stark contrast, our flag is strong and firmly unfurled.

The ASU is calling on its members to step up into the crucial role of delegate. We are currently running delegate nominations, but more are welcome and needed.

Be assured, when we are again at the bargaining table, with both our long time and newly elected delegates, we will send a clear and unequivocal message.

This is our EA, and it will be struck our way and on our terms.

United we stand
