A brief snapshot of some of the things happening across local government in Victoria.
At Geelong Regional Libraries, the new enterprise agreement was supported in a ballot of employees. No wonder it was supported after the great improvement to wages and conditions achieved by ASU members taking industrial action and sticking together.
At Brimbank City Council, efforts to resolve negotiations on the next enterprise agreement continue with a hearing at the Fair Work Commission and ASU members now voting on taking protected industrial action. Additionally, there’s an upcoming meeting of unions and the new CEO later this month.
There were ASU meetings right around Victoria at local councils, including at Mansfield, Whitehorse, Greater Shepparton, Moreland, Latrobe Cit Council, Cardinia Shire, and Banyule City Council.
At Hume City Council, all employees are voting on a new enterprise agreement that includes real improvements driven by the delegate-led ASU Bargaining Team.
Sharing knowledge of winning ASU tactics across all Victorian local government, the ASU Local Government Delegates Network held its first meeting for the year.
And ASU delegates were nominated at Kingston, Whitehorse, Banyule and Greater Shepparton city councils and at East Gippsland and Moorabool shires Congratulations to all the new ASU delegates.
