Following the library members meeting today, the ASU has spoken to Council this afternoon about several concerns regarding inadequate consultation and the implementation of a new roster commencing tomorrow.
The ASU has advised Council that no consultation on a new roster has occurred and that the matter is still in dispute. Therefore the status quo is to remain.
If Council chooses to not engage with the ASU before finalising any new roster, the matter will be taken to the FairWork Commission for assistance.
The ASU and Council will meet tomorrow to have further discussions. Another update to members will be provided then.
In the meantime, members are advised to inform their managers that this matter is still in dispute and as such the new roster will not be complied with.
Contact your Library Delegates Peter Bunn, Stephanie Tighe or Rosemary Cramp for more information.
