CAN MY EMPLOYER STAND ME DOWN
If you are being threatened with stand-down or have been stood-down please contact the ASU Member Contact Centre on info@asuvictas.com.au or 1300 855 570

WE WILL KEEP SUPPORTING MEMBERS
The ASU is here to support you in your workplace. We will keep providing industrial advice and support to members. But the way we deliver these important services may change.

When arranging meetings, organisers may ask additional questions about how members want the meeting to proceed, and if there are options available that don’t involve face to face contact.

If there is a mass meeting planned for at your workplace, your organiser will be in touch with delegates to talk about whether members want the meeting to proceed. 

Our Member Contact Centre cannot provide health advice, but the Industrial Support Officers in the contact centre can provide advice and assistance about your workplace entitlements.

If you have any difficulty accessing your entitlements please contact:
ASU Member Contact Centre | 1300 855 570 | info@asuvictas.com.au

ASU Members Win!

After taking industrial action (hampered by members of a non-union association), ASU members at Moorabool Shire Council got a better deal for workers in the next enterprise agreement.

They saw off an attack on their workplace conditions and even made some real improvements to workers rights at Moorabool. On top of that, a pay rise that will make the biggest difference to the lowest-paid workers at council.

Congratulations to ASU members who took action and attended meetings that set the direction of our bargaining.

And a huge thank you to each of our delegates at Moorabool – they are the best of our union.

Well done to our ASU members and shame on the members of the non union association for hampering our members' outstanding efforts

#solidarity we all stand on your shoulders now as we stand up for a better life in every city & shire 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

Hardly a good outcome when many at Council would be taking a pay cut each year when you take into account inflation. Too many are left behind, certainly has not benefited the entire membership.

Fantastic work, well done to the members of the ASU in Moorabool! 👏 👊

ASU - Australian Services UNION 💪💪 In UNITY

Great outcome. Congratulations to the workers in Moorabool

Absolutely fantastic, dare to struggle, dare to win Congratulations to everyone involved and a massive congratulations to ASU members and delegates

How great to hear!! Amazing job!

Congratulations, Comrades. This shows why unions are essential!

👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 We’ll done guys!! Councils will take advantage if they can…

Congrats comrades 😊

You mean the other association that is a union who also supported the your members? Not very professional of ASU to bad mouth other unions just because ex members went to them when you weren't supporting them.

Woo hoo! Well done ASUVicTas members. ✊

Great stuff

Love my union!!

Great outcome, sends a warning shot to other Councils that they can't offer below 2% ✊

Amazing work! Great to show those scabs what workers can achieve when they're not licking boots

Appreciate the gratitude, our members in parks and gardens have worked through every wave of the pandemic to make sure footy ovals are up to scratch.

Being in the ASU is like always having a team mate ready to lay out a full wingspan shepherd. Join here: bit.ly/2UwkwOW
