Management has indicated they are putting the new EBA to vote and will be commencing the access period on Tuesday 24 May.
This is a snapshot of what was achieved through these negotiations:
|$5pw personal phone allowance||ASU|
|$20pw working from home allowance||ASU|
|8am-8:30am Mon-Fi & 8am-12noon Sat library span of hours||ASU|

|First Peoples’ Working Group||ASU|
|Right to refuse shifts without taking Annual Leave for home carers||ASU|
|Improved travel allowance for home carers||ASU|
|Key improvements (breaks/allowances/processes) for MCH Nurses||ANMF|
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)
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: www.asu.asn.au/ASUJoin
