Late last week, Whittlesea management told your delegates that they think the EA is now FINAL. Management will give you a week to read it, starting in a few days. And then, you vote.

You vote on a deal that leaves you way behind inflation & the cost of living.

You vote on a deal with no 35-hour week for band 3s.

You vote on a deal that leaves “secondary” parents a full 10 weeks behind “primary” parents in terms of parental leave.

You vote on a deal that rejects 50+ of your claims for improved working conditions.

And all of this from a council with a $128 million operative surplus, in this year’s budget.

But it’s not over until we say it’s over.

We’ll be meeting this Wednesday to talk about:

  • What you think of this deal.
  • How you can contribute to a campaign to vote NO to this deal.
  • How your industrial action can force City of Whittlesea back to the bargaining table.

Don’t miss this meeting, it’ll be a big one.
