Your ASU bargaining team met with Council management representatives on Tuesday. Council’s offer remains unchanged. A summary of the status of claims can be found here.

Therefore, the offer has not yet reached the wages expectations of ASU members as endorsed at member meetings in June. Please again take the time to read the contents of the overall offer.

We encourage you to attend meetings in your workplace, speak with ASU Bargaining Representatives and Delegates, provide your feedback, and complete the survey below.

Protected Action Ballot
The results from the ballot should be released by the Australian Electoral Commission by the end of the week. An information sheet from the AEC with the list of protected actions can be downloaded here.

If the ballot is successful, the next steps must be decided by you.

To help plan for this, please complete this survey ASAP. Your answers will be kept confidential.
