Support candidates who have signed the ASU pledge

 The ASU’s Local Council Election Pledge is a commitment to communities and workers.

I will act with integrity, always remembering the weight of my decisions. I will always act for a better standard of living for working people, work to preserve public services, and stand up for secure jobs and good wages. I take seriously the impact that my actions as both a candidate for local council, and a councillor, will have on Victoria’s 54,000 local government employees.


If elected, I pledge to:

• Be committed to democracy and transparency in decision making.
• Act in the best interests of my community, and the best interests of vulnerable communities.
• Act to maintain a quality work environment with secure employment and good wages and
conditions.
• Stand for the principle of service provision, not service management.
• Advocate at all times for fair revenue and financing, to deliver public services for the public good.
• Always consider the good of the collective and the values and principles of unionism in all that I do.
• Actively support council workers throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, including campaigning for and supporting the establishment of paid pandemic leave in local council

This is a welcomed intervention by the new minister for Local Government Melissa Horne MP and we would like to see immediate steps to improve the workplace culture at Horsham City Rural Council.

The workplace culture issues at Horsham Rural City Council are serious and need to be addressed so every worker has a workplace free from bullying and harassment.

ASU VicTas Assistant Branch Secretary Leon Wiegard appeared on the news last Friday condemning the privatisation of Vicroads.

Treasurer Tim Pallas announced that a consortium of Aware Super, Australian Retirement Trust and Macquarie Asset Management was selected as the Joint Venture partner to effectively take over VicRoads.

ASU has been consulted throughout this process, and we have ensured that conditions of employment are protected through the benchmark MOU with Government. ASU delegates played a massive part in securing these conditions.

We will continue to protect our members' rights at work throughout this process and into the future.

Make no mistake, this is an $8 billion blow to Victorian workers and Victorian motorists, who are losing control of a critical piece of our state’s road infrastructure. Privatisation inevitably leads to worse services – not better.

Of course, there is more to do to modernise VicRoads’ technology and processes – workers are fully committed to this. But doing deals with private consortiums is not the way to do it, and we are extremely concerned that the government has been blinded by the billions of dollars on offer and is selling out the best interests of motorists and VicRoads workers.

It’s never been more important to join the Union.
