The ASU Negotiating Team met with management this morning for a further Enterprise Agreement bargaining meeting.

The purpose of today’s meeting was for management to respond to the ASU’s counter offer.

Our claims include a $34 a week pay rise, the transmission of business clause fixed, the introduction of a heat policy and other improvements.

Management responded today advising that they can increase the funding allocation to the Enterprise Agreement to an overall increase of 1.5%. They have advised the ASU that they are supportive of allocating this increase via a flat pay increase to maximise the wage increase for lower-paid workers.

We have scheduled a further negotiation next Tuesday to further discuss a flat wage increase and how other priorities such as transmission of business and heat policy can be implemented.

We will keep you updated about these discussions and will be bringing a consolidated new position back to members for your say.
