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.”

This is a welcomed intervention by the new minister for Local Government Melissa Horne MP and we would like to see immediate steps to improve the workplace culture at Horsham City Rural Council.

The workplace culture issues at Horsham Rural City Council are serious and need to be addressed so every worker has a workplace free from bullying and harassment.

ASU VicTas Assistant Branch Secretary Leon Wiegard appeared on the news last Friday condemning the privatisation of Vicroads.

Treasurer Tim Pallas announced that a consortium of Aware Super, Australian Retirement Trust and Macquarie Asset Management was selected as the Joint Venture partner to effectively take over VicRoads.

ASU has been consulted throughout this process, and we have ensured that conditions of employment are protected through the benchmark MOU with Government. ASU delegates played a massive part in securing these conditions.

We will continue to protect our members' rights at work throughout this process and into the future.

Make no mistake, this is an $8 billion blow to Victorian workers and Victorian motorists, who are losing control of a critical piece of our state’s road infrastructure. Privatisation inevitably leads to worse services – not better.

Of course, there is more to do to modernise VicRoads’ technology and processes – workers are fully committed to this. But doing deals with private consortiums is not the way to do it, and we are extremely concerned that the government has been blinded by the billions of dollars on offer and is selling out the best interests of motorists and VicRoads workers.

It’s never been more important to join the Union.
