We remain united in our resolve for fair pay and conditions at Derwent Valley Council. Another ballot will be coming your way.

Protected Action Ballot
ASU members will soon receive a ballot from the Australian Electoral Commission. By voting “yes” in a Protected Action Ballot, you are not committing to taking industrial action. Rather, you are agreeing that employees should have the right to do so if required as a last resort.

You can access the ASU How to Vote Card here

An information sheet from the AEC with the list of protected actions can be downloaded here.

DON’T DELAY: Try to return your postal vote as soon as you receive it due to postage delays.

If you support taking action remember to sign the declaration in addition to ticking ‘YES’ on the ballot paper.
