Last month Council tabled a draft agreement which removed standby allowance, reduced some penalty rates and reduced job security for some workers. Over the last month ASU members have stood up for a fair deal and taken industrial action. Your ASU Delegates and Officials have been in intensive negotiations on your behalf.

Council have now reversed those proposed changes and have put a slightly improved pay offer on the table.

  • Backpay (2020-2021) 1.6% *conditional on a first YES vote not later than 30/6/21
  • Year 1 (2021-2022) 1.5%
  • Year 2 (2022-2023) 1.4% minimum OR 80% of the rate cap (whichever is higher)

Whilst it is an improvement, this offer is still less than cost of living increases.

We are holding members meetings to get your view on the latest offer. All ASU members are urged to attend one of the following:
