With the current rollover agreement set to expire in March 2023, ASU has secured agreement from SEW Management to commence bargaining in October this year.
Our preference was to commence earlier, but Management has agreed to hold meetings as frequently as required in order to get the process completed by March.
The current Government Wages Policy offers 1.5% pay increases per year. We have made it abundantly clear to Government that this is simply unacceptable in the current high inflation environment. We expect that wages policy to be increased before we reach any deal with SEW.
We will soon be holding members’ meetings to discuss our log of claims. In the meantime, we want to hear from you. It’s your agreement, and if you have any thoughts about what you want changed or included, please send them through to Matt Price at firstname.lastname@example.org
And talk to your colleagues today about the importance of union membership. The more members we have, the stronger we are at the bargaining table. It’s easy to join online at https://asujoin.asn.au/
