Restrictions

 

The Premier has announced a lockdown of metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire from Thursday 9 July:

The areas listed below will be required to return to Stage 3 Stay at Home restrictions – for the next six weeks until August 19. If you live in these locations, there will again only be four reasons to be out:

  1. Shopping for food and supplies,
  2. care and caregiving,
  3. exercise, and
  4. study or work – if you can’t do it from home.

Wherever you can, you should do these things as close to home as you can. But if you do need to leave your postcode, those same restrictions – those same four reasons – travel with you.

List of restricted LGAs
Banyule Glen Eira Maroondah Nillumbik
Bayside Greater Dandenong Melbourne Port Phillip
Boroondara Hobsons Bay Melton Stonnington
Brimbank Hume Monash Whitehorse
Cardinia Kingston Moonee Valley Whittlesea
Casey Knox Mitchell Shire Wyndham
Darebin Manningham Moreland Yarra
Frankston Maribyrnong Mornington Peninsula Yarra Ranges

We are aware that some of you find working from home challenging but please be aware that your employer must not allow you to work from the workplace if it is reasonably practicable for you to work from home. They also cannot compel you to attend the workplace for the same reason.

The Premier also announced that school holidays will be extended by a further week.

Year 11 and 12 students, year 10 students doing year 11 and 12 subjects, along with special schools will return next week as planned.

The ASU will send more specific industry information out over the next couple of days.

There’s never any excuse for wage theft.The ASU, together with the TWU and FAAA took Qantas to court as they are incorrectly applying JobKeeper and delaying the payment of shift penalties and overtime.

That didn’t fly with us or our members. The Federal Court has just handed down their decision and we won! We are now calling for Qantas to accept the court’s decision and back-pay all underpaid employees. There is never any excuse for wage theft.

The need to repair and maintain vital infrastructure never stops, and neither do members of the ASU.

Like members of our union right across Victoria and Tasmania, Ben and Jake at Ballarat City Council have been out doing vital repairs while keeping safe.

Ben works on keeping footpaths and drains up to scratch and Jake, who usually works in road maintenance, was giving him a hand.

Thank you them and to everyone else who is out keeping our footpaths, roads and drains safe and operational.
