Rather than start negotiating on a new enterprise agreement, Glenorchy City Council brought in a wage freeze.
But ASU members weren’t going to accept that quietly, so we headed off to the Fair Work Commission to get Glenorchy City Council to negotiate not just dictate a wage freeze.
We had a good result with the fair work commissioner proposing a draft plan to start negotiations.
ASU members who work at Glenorchy City Council met with ASU organiser Sam Batchelor on Thursday night.
They let her know they want a say on their conditions at work, not to have them decided by their employer.
And every step of the way, we’re by their side.
