The ASU bargaining team have been negotiating the new EA agreement with CAFS Senior Management over the last 12 months.

We have reached a critical point and need all members to attend one of the meetings below to inform you all of what is now on the table and seek your views on what is proposed.

Members at the last EA bargaining meeting on August 31 the ASU was clear and unambiguous in stating that the following 4 conditions were not supported by the membership to be downgraded

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

CAFS has confirmed that the 3 days will stay, have modified their original position on redundancy provisions and Personal leave. However, LSL provisions CAFS have not moved on their position to strip them back.

CAFS did state at the last meeting again ‘what more do the members want”, this will be the central point of discussion and your views are critical in arriving at an agreed bargaining position.

Another Bargaining meeting is slated to be scheduled very shortly so again your attendance is critical.
