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

💪💪 IT PAYS TO TAKE A STAND! 💪💪

Members at Derwent Valley Council in Tasmania were willing to walk off the job to get a better deal. As a result, management have returned an improved offer which fixes the issues members were concerned about.

The agreement will now go out to a vote and it is expected that it will be endorsed by employees.

94% of ASU members at Derwent Valley Council, in southern Tasmania, voted to endorse members taking protected industrial action in pursuit of a fair deal in EBA negotiations.

Over the last 24 hours meetings of members overwhelmingly endorsed a 4 hour stop work action for Wednesday morning next week.

Council need to improve their offer and listen to their employees. Workers bills are going up and their wages are just going backwards.

We think its about time they resoloved the long standing underpayment and contract issues for their child care Educators to ensure they are paid the legal minimum rates.

Stay tuned for more!
