On Tuesday 26 October 2021, the Advocate newspaper ran a story about Devonport City Council’s greatly improved financial position and the $2 million surplus they have made, despite claiming they would have a $2.2 million deficit during Enterprise Agreement negotiations.

Devonport City Council has improved its financial position significantly and has cut its total debt by $2.1 million during 2020-21. Council has also utilised current low-interest rates to refinance its debt after some of their loans matured.

Coincidently, the first Consultative Committee meeting was held on the same day as the article was published. Given the significant improvement in the Council’s financial position, the ASU took the opportunity to request that all employees be granted 3 days leave between Christmas and New Year (similar to last year).

The ASU knows that this surplus would not have come about if it wasn’t for the workers at Devonport City Council. You have carried this organisation through COVID-19 and out the other end. You deserve to be rewarded for it at the very least.

We will keep you up-to-date with the outcome of our request.
