Last week the ASU took Moreland Council to the Fair Work Commission regarding a consultation dispute within the Compliance and Amenities department regarding the introduction of new technology- specifically body worn cameras and two way radios.

ASU requested Moreland Council meet with the Organiser Lorraine Di Pietrantonio and delegate Con Harboglou to work through several outstanding matters pertaining to this new surveillance technology- specifically;

  • Staff are required to wear the vests at all times even on their breaks and other situation such as toilet breaks
  • Training requirements have not been met
  • Concerns that the information recorded may be used for disciplinary purposes-
  • Concerns regarding heat related injuries as a consequence of the vests

The ASU application was successful and the Commissioner has instructed Moreland council to engage in a consultation process within a 2 week timeframe and implement any outcomes within a 6 week period.  Both parties agreed to this course of action. The ASU welcomed this outcome.

The ASU has sought a paid members meeting for Monday 27 May and have scheduled the required meeting with the employer for Wednesday 29 May.

Stay tuned for confirmation of members meeting.
