With the looming deadline of caretaker mode approaching, there has been a mad scramble to get three other agreements through the Government approval process and on to a ballot of all staff. ASU is pleased to report that all three were supported with resounding majorities.
The results were as follows:
- Grampians Wimmera Mallee Water – 96.7% ‘Yes’
- South East Water – 99.8% ‘Yes’
- Barwon Asset Solutions – 100% ‘Yes’
None of these agreements were easy to reach, and everyone’s patience was tested at times, but thanks to the outstanding work of our delegates at all these organisations, we ended up with new Enterprise Agreements that were overwhelmingly endorsed by staff.
