In 2012 we celebrated the historic win of the ASU Equal Pay case!

After a long campaign championed by ASU members, we won 23-45% increases to Award wages, setting new minimum rates of pay. In 2020 we face a threat to Equal Pay, with the federal government failing to commit to fully fund the legal minimum rates after 2020.

If Equal Pay is not funded jobs and services will be under threat.

We want a sustainable sector that thrives on secure funding and a secure workforce. We need to stand together again as we did to win Equal Pay back in 2012, and Save Equal Pay!

Please come to along to a briefing from ASU officials on Equal Pay, the $550 million threat of funding shortfall and details on the ASU’s campaign to Save Equal Pay, now underway across the country.

DATE: Monday 17 February
TIME: 3 – 4.30
VENUE: CBA Level 6 357 Collins Street (please sign in downstairs and please photo ID)

We look forward to engaging with you all at these crucially important and vital meetings

Now is the perfect time to ask a co-worker to stand with us to SAVE EQUAL PAY. Share this email with your co-workers and ask them to join the ASU today.

Please note: The meeting is also an opportunity to raise any other workplace matters and given that we have allocated 90 minutes there should be ample time to discuss the matters at hand.
