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

Workers have carried Australia through the pandemic.

We need politicians to realise that workers are the hidden heroes of this crisis, and that we will not accept cuts to working conditions.

This is what workers using their collective strength to protect their interests and get better outcomes looks like.

Well done to the delegates at Manningham City Council's depot who brought together members this week for an important workplace meeting.

Steve and Jason are a couple of ASU Proud delegates pictured sporting their ASU masks, hats and even an ASU KeepCup.

Thanks also to Steve B, Jason, Peter and Steve T!

Thank you to Minister for Local Government Shaun Leane MP for meeting with ASU local government delegates from across Victoria today.

It was great to hear from the minister on his plans for the portfolio, and his reflections on local government.

Delegates took the opportunity to discuss important issues with the minister, including outsourcing of in-home aged care, library funding, rate capping, bushfire recovery and enterprise bargaining in local government.

We hope Minister Leane got a better appreciation of the big issues facing local government workers in Victoria.
