From an underfunded aged care system, a massive rise in insecure work, through to more and more contracting out of Council run local services, wherever you look, there is a crisis on the frontline.

We need the Government to invest in Councils capacity to provide the services people rely on.

The ASUโ€™s Crisis on the Frontline Campaign is addressing these issues in Local Government and we need your help!

Did you know around 20% of all local government employees are now casual? And the City of Port Phillip spent $6,714,000 on casual staff in 2019/2020?

The growth of insecure work is no accident. Employers have discovered many ways to move workers from secure to insecure forms of employment. These strategies include using labour-hire/agency companies to create triangular employment relationships avoiding any employment accountability and transparency, using casuals and multiple fixed short-term contracts to avoid workers acquiring benefits that are only applicable to those in full-time permanent positions and the list goes on.

This is only going to get worse โ€“unless we act NOW! Come along to a mass member meeting to hear more.

DATE: Wednesday 19 May
TIME: 1.30pm
VENUE: St Kilda Town Hall, Ground Floor Training Room

Members and non-members are welcome.

Please note that CoPP rejected our request for a paid member meeting, therefore please attend during your break time.
