These are in addition to pay increases that set a new benchmark in Victorian councils, far exceeding what has been offered in other municipalities:
2021: 2.6% or $42pw (backpaid)
2022: 2.1%
2023 & 2024: 2% or rate cap

This was achieved by ASU members working together across Moreland. Our bans were what put pressure on the CEO to do better. That’s why over 85% of ASU members and unanimous ANMF members supported the offer at union meetings.

ASU and ANMF reps have also worked tirelessly over the past week to review and scrutinise all new clauses to ensure they’re constructed properly.

Now you get to vote on whether to accept the offer.

Union members achieved this by sticking together. Ask a colleague to join today at:
