Your Agreement negotiations are still in progress; at the last meeting held  on Wednesday 5 June Council provided a ‘settlement offer’ which consists of their wages offer as well as some alarming reductions to redundancy provisions and a few minor improvements. Please see these below;

  • Transfer of Business- New clause that REMOVES the right to redundancy entitlements when transfer of business occurs
  • Redundancy Entitlement- Reducing the redeployment period from 8 weeks to 4 weeks
  • 3 year Agreement
  • 2% or $22 whichever is greater increase pro rata for part time staff payable from 1 July 2019/2020/2021
  • Service Recognition Day- additional day after 10 years continuous service
  • Superannuation on unpaid portion of maternity leave- $300 once off payment (pro rata for part time staff)
  • Bereavement leave- increase to 4 days
  • Personal leave clause to reworded-no loss or improvement to condition
  • Casual Employment- Right to request to convert extended from 6 months to 12 months
  • On-call Availability and standby- rewording with no loss or improvement to condition
  • Local Work Area appendices- subject to further discussion at this point only significant changes are proposed within the Aquatic Centre appendix

Your ASU delegates and organiser have discussed the offer and believe it falls short of member claims.

The wage offer is less than cost of living increases and reduces redundancy entitlements recently tested in the  Federal Court.

ASU organiser Lorraine Di Pietrantonio will be holding a round of update meetings to take members through the offer and obtain member feedback prior to the next scheduled EBA meeting on 26 June.
