Will the election of a new Mayor and the appointment of a new General Manager be a defining moment for Glamorgan Spring Bay Council? Only time will tell.
Yesterday the ASU wrote to all Councillors at Glamorgan Spring Bay Council asking them to commit to using their role as Councillor to work constructively with, and advocate for, workers.
The pledge requires Councillors to commit to maintaining a safe and fair work environment and to always consider the impacts on employees and the community in decision making.
The pledge also requires Councillors to commit to the values of democracy and transparency in their decision making and to always act in the best interests of the community.
Remaining representative of the community is integral to supporting local government workers and allowing them to carry out service provision effectively and adequately. Local government employees are hurt when the reputation of a council is brought into disrepute. It is important to remain representative to ensure that workers, and the integral services they carry out, can continue effectively.
We’ll let you know which Councillors commit to the pledge so you know who you can rely on.
Rest assured, either way, the ASU remains right here, by your side.
