Yesterday the employee ballot for the proposed EA was completed and counted with employees overwhelmingly voting “yes” to approve their new Enterprise Agreement (EA).

With a strong 71% participation rate in the vote and 93.3% of employees voting “yes” to the EA, it shows solid support from members and staff for the offer negotiated by the ASU and your delegates.

As discussed in member meetings, the new EA is quite a different structure than the previous EA, with some new provisions and content also. The ASU intends on scheduling information sessions on the new EA for ASU members in the New Year.

Once again the ASU would like to thank delegates for their hard work over the last 12 months.

With an outcome like this, it’s a good time to remind your co-workers to join the union. The ASU is the only union for local government workers. The ASU protects, promotes and improves the working conditions and entitlements of our members.
