The ASU and other Unions met with Casey management a little over a week ago to recommence negotiations for a replacement Enterprise Agreement.
It is, as always, the intention of the ASU to bargain in good faith on behalf of members. However, the position that Casey management are taking is anything but bargaining in good faith.
Casey management commenced the meeting by saying how disappointed they were with the outcome of the previous ballot. They then went on to say, “The only reason the agreement was voted down was that employees were appalled that they were being offered a pay rise at all”.
They claim employees have said to them it was too generous and they wouldn’t vote yes for an agreement that included a pay rise. Following that, management stated their offer was going to remain the same.
This is how out of touch Casey management are.
They believe their employees feel a pay rise equating to less than 2 coffees a week is too generous.
They claim the agreement was rejected because it was too generous, however, they go on to say they will offer the same again.
They actually seem to believe their own rhetoric.
The ASU will continue meeting with Casey management to pursue an outcome that is acceptable to its members.
Please feel free to share this newsletter with your colleagues and encourage them to join you in being members of the ASU.
