The ASU has applied to the Fair Work Commission for a protected action ballot. This will allow ASU members to vote to undertake protected industrial action for a better agreement.

It is important that all ASU members exercise their right to vote!

What happens next?
The AEC relies on the addresses provided by the ASU and Launch, so if you have moved and not updated your details, please do so immediately by emailing

If your address details are not up to date you may not get to vote!

Bans that the majority of members vote to support, will become protected actions in support of your enterprise agreement claims.

ASU members will decide which bans they put on, and when. This will take place at ASU member meetings, so make sure you attend!

Protected industrial action means it is safe to undertake.
ASU members cannot be discriminated against or targeted for undertaking protected action.

Launch may attempt to discourage you from voting yes to take industrial action. If this is happening, ensure that your local ASU Delegate knows.
