The ASU is ramping up our fight against the Victorian Government’s rate capping policy. It’s a policy that is failing local government workers and failing communities across the state.
Fighting against the failed rate capping policy is part of our commitment to protecting and improving the working conditions and entitlements of members.
Rate capping is making it more difficult for ASU members to get fair pay rises, leaving many workers with wages that barely keep up with the cost of living.
Local communities are also seeing the negative effects of rate capping with cuts to important services and delays to renewing vital infrastructure.
