The ASU and your Delegates attended the CoM Staff Consultation Committee on Monday 7 September.
Council has committed that they will not stand-down staff during stage 4 lockdown and will continue to redeploy and find alternative duties for staff during this period.
Efficiency reviews across Council
CoM has engaged an external consultant to undertake efficiency reviews across Council over the next 18 months. CoM says the goals of the review are to improve efficiency and effectiveness of service delivery.
The ASU will ensure its participation and that consultation occurs throughout this period.
Five days of COVID-19 Care Leave has been extended until 28 September
COVID-19 Care Leave will come from your existing personal leave entitlement and is available to all staff needing to look after themselves and families due to the impacts of COVID-19. You will not need any supporting documentation to take this leave. It can be taken as part or full days for respite or general time away from work.
Five days of additional COVID-19 Childcare Leave has been extended until 28 September
An additional COVID-19 Childcare Leave provision is available for people needing to care for children aged 0-14 while schools and childcare centres are closed. This leave is an additional five days available for the period of Stage 4 restrictions. Given that schools will not be reopening for some year levels and for some time, the ASU has requested that the use of this leave be extended beyond 28 September. CoM advise they will consider this.
The ASU, as always, IS BY YOUR SIDE.
