It is time to celebrate the work of ASU Delegates and members in delivering good pay outcomes for all employees at the Maribyrnong City Council.
Your bargaining representatives were able to lock this deal in until 2022! More recently, we have been hit with the flow on economic impacts of devastating bushfires and a global pandemic, so it is good to know that the provisions within your Enterprise Agreement will prevail through these difficult times.
Today you will get a pay rise of 2.25% of $30 extra a week, whichever is higher.
Unionised workforces receive higher wage outcomes and entitlements than those that are not unionised.
ASU Delegates and members have advocated and achieved better conditions and entitlements for all Maribyrnong employees including a good pay increase and sting enforceable conditions. Most importantly, members and delegates were able to preserve your job security!
More members lead to more effective negotiations and improved outcomes for everyone. Union members hear an alternative perspective to their employer’s views and gain a broader industry perspective on their wages and conditions. Ultimately it takes a union majority in the workplace to vote no to an agreement and prevent erosion of conditions.
Unionising your workplace has never been more important. Talk to a non-member today about where your pay increase came from.
Your membership is your strength, know someone who is not a member? Don’t forget that the ASU recruitment competition is underway until September, $500 is up for grabs for the member who recruits the most new people.
