Strength in Unity

We are conducting workplace meetings to gather ASU members’ feedback and input into the union’s plans for 2019. Thirty years of experimenting with trickle-down economics has failed to provide secure jobs or fair pay rises. CEO and executive pay rates are at an all-time high – yet pay increases for workers are at an all-time low. Ever increasing restrictions on how unions operate are making it harder to bargain for fair pay and conditions – or even retain current conditions.

The rules do not support working people, the rules are broken: it’s time to Change the Rules!

All of the conditions that you and your co-workers have were fought for and won by union members such as you. We know from ASU wins, such as the Equal Pay Campaign and community sector Portable Long Service Leave, that when we stick together we win. United we stand, divided we fall!

In 2018 we reviewed the ASU’s vision and structure to deliver the best outcomes for members. Please come along to tell us what you think to help set the agenda, to Change the Rules and to hear about:

  • ASU member networks (such as community mental health, Family Violence) and how you can get involved
  • Current campaigns
  • Opportunities with a re-elected state government
  • Opportunities with a new federal government

The meeting will be held at:

DATE: Wednesday 6 February  2019
TIME: 11.30am-12.30pm
VENUE: Latrobe Community Health Service Morwell

This meeting is scheduled to be held when workers usually take a lunch break. The meeting is approved for staff and members to attend during this break.

What else can you do?

  • Encourage other members to come to the meeting with you
  • Pass this on to a non-member and ask them to join the ASU

If you are not a member you can join at
