SCRAP THE CAP

 

Since the introduction of rate capping in Victoria ASU members have found it increasingly difficult to obtain any fair or reasonable pay increases and the services Victorians rely on every day are under threat.

We are seeking changes to the rate capping policy to ensure that:

1. Shared services are not be used to reduce jobs, pay or conditions across local governments

2. There is not an artificial cap placed on wages and conditions for council workers covered by enterprise agreements

3. Measures are put in place that stop ballooning wages for senior executives

The ASU’s proposed changes will promote secure jobs, fair and reasonable pay increases, and better funding of the services our communities rely on every day.

Sign up to our campaign to scrap the cap.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

ASU delegates and members from Nillumbik, and ASU staff turning up at tonight’s Council Meeting to show their support for members providing Kerbside Waste Services. Standing up for keeping council jobs in house and no privatisation of waste in Nillumbik!! In the Bin!! 💪

UPDATE: after 3 hours of waiting for the waste management item to come up, and some debate on the issue, Councillors voted 5-2 to proceed with market testing. But hey, the Mayor said our members do such a great job they’ve got nothing to worry about. If only it were so simple, but the fight’s not over. Fair Work here we come. Watch this space comrades...well done to all the members who lasted the distance past 10:30, solidarity!👏👏

Carl Cowie, kicking more jobs to the curb. Not on our watch! Mornington Peninsula shire were happy to see the back of him. Nillumbik ASU members will see him off here too! #kickCarltothecurb
