As a result of negotiations between the ASU and management that were held before Deputy President Mansini of the Fair Work Commission, a proposed agreement will be put to the vote by employees starting on Monday 14 October.

While the ASU has made progress improving conditions of employment, we have not reached an ‘in-principle’ agreement on Wages/End of Band Recognition/Well-Being Days and will, therefore, be calling on all employees to ‘VOTE NO’ when the ballot opens.

Please distribute this e-newsletter amongst your colleagues and attend one of the meetings listed below, with your colleagues.

These are paid meetings, approved by management.

 It is critical to make an informed choice and support the efforts of your union to improve outcomes for all employees at the City of Kingston.

The ASU will be holding a series of meetings to inform employees across various sites leading up to the vote, join us!
