On Wednesday 30 March your ASU bargaining representatives again met with EGSC management to continue negotiations for a new enterprise agreement.

Members in Compliance and Caravan Parks need to be aware of EGSC claim to change your working hours.  

Council’s claim is to change your ordinary days of work from Monday to Friday to Monday to Sunday, effectively removing all weekend penalty rates and giving them the ability to have you work a 7-day roster. In addition, they want to change your ordinary hours per day from 8 to 10, reducing your ability to earn overtime.

This is a huge change with a potentially significant financial loss and impact on your work-life balance.

ASU has spoken to some members who work in these areas but are keen to speak to all of you. Please contact your ASU Organiser or Delegate for further details.

A member meeting will be held soon.

Members are well represented at the table with Andrea Court, Geoff Aitken, Mick Jakins, Cindy O’Connor and Joanne McEvoy (ASU Organisers) all at the table. This is particularly important given management representatives keep growing in numbers. The last meeting had 2 General Managers, an externally paid lawyer and HR representatives present.

Members are to be congratulated for being involved in this process; it is only with a strong united membership that great results can be achieved.

It is not too late to stand with your colleagues! This is your agreement that will set your wages and conditions into the future, join your Union now.

ASU membership is tax-deductible. It pays to belong. Have your voice heard and join the ASU online today.
