Schedule A meeting
As part of the resolution of the new enterprise agreement, the City of Melbourne has committed to the introduction of a ‘remuneration policy’ for Schedule A workers, by December 2021. City of Melbourne has committed to consult as part of the introduction of the policy.
The two-tiered pay structure is fundamentally unjust, doesn’t exist anywhere else in the industry and the ASU opposes it. However, the ASU will engage in the consultation process to make the Remuneration Policy as fair as possible and give Schedule A members the best chance to access progression payments.
We will be holding a lunchtime members meeting next week to discuss the ASU’s objectives for the new Remuneration Policy and campaign ideas about how we can achieve these objectives. Please encourage your colleagues who are interested in improving conditions for Schedule A and may be considering joining the ASU to attend this meeting.
1.15pm, Wednesday 27 October 21, 2021
Applying for annual leave
It’s coming up to Christmas time and lots of people will be wanting to apply for leave. The enterprise agreement (clause 60) provides that annual leave can be taken at a time agreed between the employee and Council “having regard to the Employee’s preference and Council’s operating requirements.” If you think your leave application has been unreasonably denied, please get in contact with the ASU member contact centre for advice on 1300 855 570 / firstname.lastname@example.org .
Enterprise agreement update
The new enterprise agreement is currently before the Fair Work Commission for consideration and certification. This process can take up to 4-5 weeks. We will let you know as soon as the agreement is certified and when you can expect your back pay.
