Moreland City Council School crossing supervisors recently met with ASU Organiser Lorraine Di Pietrantonio following a recent focus group meeting. During this meeting member Sinead McKinlay put her hand up to step up into the Delegate position, we will be holding an electronic election for her nomination.
A list of concerns raised by the group was developed, see details below; we will be working hand in hand with the members to resolve these;
- Amendments to Position Descriptions- specifically the inclusion of training
- Access to refresher training for SCS to be conducted every 2 years
- Permanent staff to be allocated on a permanent basis to area. This is to be reflected within contract
- Ensuring adequate cover for when SCS are on leave
- Personal safety for SCS
- The requirement of personal protective equipment
- Adequate training ie- manuals and other policies
- Amendments to heat policy
- Adequate paid time for completion of incident reports
- Staff log on’s which will allow access to intranet
- Establishing an agreed induction program for new starters
- Access to policies in languages other than English- as many workers English is a second language
We are proposing a meeting with all School Crossing Supervisors at the Town Hall. Once this meeting has been approved we will send out further notification.
In order for us to be able to implement change we must stand together as a united team, we understand that many SCS work in isolation making it more important to work together to ensure the lines of communications are open. By joining your union the ASU we can assist in achieve this.
