DATE: Tuesday 5 October
TIME: 12.30pm

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

At the last EA bargaining meeting on September 22 the ASU was unambiguous in stating that the following 4 conditions were not supported by the membership to be downgraded

  1. 3 days end of year Leave
  2. Long Service Leave
  3. Personal Leave
  4. Redundancy

CAFS have again confirmed that the 3 days will stay. However Long service Leave is dramatically reduced, personal leave is reduced after 5 years of service and redundancy for anyone not at 7 years is also decreased, all this at a time when we are in the grip of a pandemic.

An update on the ASU’s position that wording in the EA on key entitlements remain, will be provided.
