The Tasmanian Government’s review of the Local Government Act is continuing with the recent release of the Discussion Paper outlining a number of proposed changes to the Act.

The ASU remains concerned over a number of items listed for further consideration and how they would impact on employees within the Local Government sector in the state.

We have commissioned the ASU National Office to make a submission in relation to the Discussion Paper raising our concerns over possible impacts to long service leave entitlements, the potential capping of rates, further moves towards amalgamation and efficiencies by consolidating the workforces of multiple councils and the creation of Regional Councils.

If you are concerned with any aspect of proposed changes to the Local Government Act please contact ASU Organiser Aaron De La Torre on adelatorre@asuvictas.com.au or 0427 813 821 to let us know about your concerns.
