Members have voted to take Protected Industrial Action next week.
We will be having a Stop Work Action next Wednesday 8 December from 8.30am – 12.30pm at Broadmeadows Town Hall.
We ask all members to stop work and attend a mass members meeting at the Broadmeadows Town Hall. Members participating in the stop work will be deducted pay for the stoppage.
This has been a hard decision to make, but management is dragging their feet and is yet to put an acceptable pay increase on the table.
86% of workers voted No in the recent EA ballot. This was a strong rejection of the unacceptably low pay offer.
Council is still not listening to you. It’s time to take action and send a clear message that Hume workers deserve a fair pay increase. Members have worked hard during the pandemic, keeping services running and supporting ratepayers. You deserve better than 1.5%
Stop Work Action at other Councils has resulted in fairer pay offers.
The ASU Bargaining Group is asking for 2.25%. This is a fair and just outcome. Council has no debt and is in a strong financial position moving forward with the growth in new housing across Hume.
Join us at Town Hall for a BBQ and to hear from your Delegates and other members. Even if you are still working from home, please come along. The more members who attend, the stronger we are.
