Did you miss your ASU member’s meeting?
ASU officials and members at Hume met via MS Teams last Thursday to discuss several matters, here’s the update for those who couldn’t attend.
ASU provided an update on Councils position since new restrictions have come into place. Hume has given the ASU a commitment that they will not stand-down permanent staff in the affected areas and are working on a plan this week to redeploy staff and find alternative duties during this period.
Any casuals that have been stood down will also have the opportunity to apply for work through the Working for Victoria Program, https://sidekicker.com/au/ and need to let HR know they have applied to be given priority access to these roles.
Insecure work reporting on casuals, agency and use of fixed-term employees is being prepared, and once this information has been provided the ASU will be following up causal employees who are eligible for conversion. If you have worked consistent hours in the past 9 months and believe you are eligible for conversion, please contact Hayley Davies on email@example.com .
ASU deputy secretary Michelle Jackson provided an overview on how Covid-19 has impacted Local Government and the advocacy work the ASU is doing, including a recent meeting with the new Minister for Local Government to discuss issues members are facing during this tough time.
Your membership is your strength, know someone who is not a member? The ASU recruitment competition is underway until September, $500 is up for grabs for the member who recruits the most new members. https://www.asuvictas.com.au/asu-recruitment-competition/
