Last week management tabled a single-page document regarding a proposal to ‘roll-over’ the existing enterprise agreement (attached). As a result, management have approved one hour paid meetings across the organisation for the various unions/negotiators to consult with their constituents (i.e. union members) for the purposes of providing feedback to a meeting scheduled for Thursday 2 May.  Further ASU members meetings would be held to approve the rollover agreement should that be the preference of members.

At this point in time the ASU has made arrangements for a number of meetings across different sites and departments. These are as per the following schedule:

Whitehorse Home & Community Services/Food Services Department Staff
