Recently, the ASU and delegates have become aware of a discrepancy in the payment of Saturday work. We understand that council are only applying the penalty rate clause to part time staff, not full-time staff who are getting paid the overtime provision instead.

The ASU have investigated this issue and would like to report back to members. Following two member meetings last week and delegate feedback, we have been instructed by members to pursue council implementing the 9am-2pm penalty rate model that was agreed to in bargaining for all library staff.

The ASU have written to council this week – see letter here

Once council respond we will inform members.

Any questions please contact your delegates or organisers.

By encouraging your workmates to join the ASU we will have a stronger voice for workers at the City of Port Phillip.  It is easy for anyone who is not yet a member to join online at
