Restrictions

The Victorian Government has announced further restrictions to limit the spread of coronavirus.

For 7 days from midnight on Thursday 27th May 2021 there will be only 5 reasons to leave our homes:

  • Food and supplies,
  • Authorised work,
  • Care and caregiving,
  • Exercise, for up to two hours and with one other person, and
  • Getting vaccinated.

“Exercise and shopping will be limited to five kilometres from home. If there’s no shops in your 5km radius, you can travel to the ones closest to you. Shopping is also limited to one person per day, per household.

Face masks will also need to be worn inside and outdoors – everywhere except your own home.

Private and public gatherings will not be permitted, although visiting your intimate partner continues to be okay. Single person bubbles will also be allowed.

Childcare and kinder will remain open, but schools will need to close other than for the children of authorised workers and vulnerable kids.

Shops like supermarkets, food stores, bottle shops, banks, petrol stations and pharmacies will also remain open. Cafes and restaurants will be able to offer take-away only. Gyms, hairdressers, community facilities and entertainment venues will all close. Non-essential retail may only open for click and collect.”

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
