URGENT CALL TO ACTION TO SECURE YOUR JOB IN LOCAL GOVERNMENT

 

The work that local government employees do is vitally important. These are some of Tasmania’s most essential workers and they should not be facing the prospects of stand downs or unemployment as a result of COVID-19.

3,500 Tasmanians who work in the local government sector in Tasmania have been left behind by both State and Federal governments. The decision by the Federal Government to deny councils access to the Job Keeper package is deeply disappointing and inequitable.

Council run services like swimming pools, child care centres and museums have had to close as a result of coronavirus. If these services were run by the private sector they would attract Federal Government support. It is fundamentally inequitable that these workers do not qualify for Job Keeper payments.

It’s time for the state government to offer support and ensure council employees receive the same job guarantees as the majority of the Australian workforce have.

Recently at the City depot, we had a productive meeting discussing the proposed restructure with members of the union. And to top it off 2 new ASU delegates were elected to represent their workmates.
