You are invited to be a part of the ASU Library Liaison Network where union delegates, activists and members meet bi-monthly via zoom on a Tuesday night between 7pm – 8pm.
Meeting Schedule 2022
Please email Grace Contessa at firstname.lastname@example.org to join this group by providing your name, what library you work at and your mobile number. You will then receive a link for each meeting, plus you will be added to our WhatsApp group where librarians across Victoria chat and compare conditions, challenges and EBA wins.
We will be inviting guest speakers to these meetings regularly to speak about important issues in libraries such as OH&S matters, mental health, and examples of union activism.
Our guest speakers for our next meeting are Corey Rabaut from our National office who has presented on ASU Career Launchpad webinars specifically in regards to OH&S and Mental health, followed by Jedd Rothman from Maurice Blackburn who will discuss Changes to Workcover legislation regarding psychological injuries and how to make a claim if your mental health is suffering as a result of work.
