CITY OF HOBART REFUSES TO CONTINUE BARGAINING

Following two strong no votes, the City of Hobart General Manager has taken his bat and ball and gone home.

He is refusing to bargain unless members back down on their claims first.

Nick Heath claims a 40% vote in favour of the agreement is enough to stop bargaining. What he has failed to realise is that 50% more employees voted no to his pathetic offer than those who voted yes.

We're asking for job security in Tasmania's largest Council. We're seeking to maintain additional superannuation contributions. And we're seeking a fair pay rise in line with community expectations.

We WILL get them back to the table.

DID YOU KNOW:
The Directors and the General Manager at this Council received combined salary increases in the rage of 16 - 19% last financial year but are only offering 2.5% to their employees; despite budgeting for 3% increases for the next 20 years. Rates in this municipality also increased by 3.25% for rate payers, many of whom are also employees.

Across the north east of Victoria and in East Gippsland, ASU members are working to restore communities. This includes members who are out around Omeo working hard to prevent trees collapsing, removing damaged trees and making areas safe. This is important work that is part of re-opening roads to isolated communities. ... See MoreSee Less
