ASU members across Victorian local government are determined to get a better deal on pay and conditions at work.
A new enterprise agreement at Moreland City Council is out for a vote of employees. After taking industrial action including strikes, ASU members have won pay increases that set a new benchmark in Victorian councils.
The ASU won a major case at the Fair Work Commission – defending the rights of ASU members at Boroondara Council to proper consultation on the proposed privatisation of in-home aged care.https://www.asuvictas.com.au/fair-work-commission-win-for-asu-members/
There have been ASU member meetings at workplaces including: Darebin, East Gippsland, Casey, Melton, Port Phillip, Golden Plains, Brimbank, Glen Eira, Ararat, Boroondara, Wodonga, Latrobe, Moyne, Greater Dandenong and Whitehorse. We’ve welcomed lots of new members joining the ASU off the back of delegates and organisers conversations during these meetings.
New ASU delegates have been elected at Glen Eira, Melton, Ararat, Pyrenees and Kingston councils. Congratulations to each new delegate for stepping up into this important role.
And ASU delegates from across the state came together online to discuss issues in the sector and share information across workplaces, including a guest speaker from Migrant Worker’s Centre and Moreland delegates sharing their experiences.
