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

94% of ASU members at Derwent Valley Council, in southern Tasmania, voted to endorse members taking protected industrial action in pursuit of a fair deal in EBA negotiations.

Over the last 24 hours meetings of members overwhelmingly endorsed a 4 hour stop work action for Wednesday morning next week.

Council need to improve their offer and listen to their employees. Workers bills are going up and their wages are just going backwards.

We think its about time they resoloved the long standing underpayment and contract issues for their child care Educators to ensure they are paid the legal minimum rates.

Stay tuned for more!

Secure work = better support

Community Mental Health Practitioners like Shantell provide the kind of support that changes lives. But the rise in fixed term contracts in the community sector has meant high turnover and more insecurity for both workers and clients.

It's dumb, and it hurts everyone involved.
