A Message from your ASU delegates

South East Water staff covered by the recently approved EA are about to get the second “annual” pay increase, which gives cause for celebration!

It’s also significant to note that this pay increase was negotiated to be brought forward to March which can squarely be attributed to members and their ASU bargaining reps.

It’s extremely unlikely management would have agreed to this without the involvement of ASU members. The effect of this pay increase being brought forward is illustrated in the table below:

What this means is that for members over a level 1.3 your decision to be a member has financially paid itself off! What’s more this early pay increase applies in future years also so it’s paid itself off for the next 3 years.

And that’s not counting ALL the other pay increases and benefits that members fought for and won through this and previous campaigns. And in addition, there’s the value of all the other benefits available to members including access to Union Shopper, free will kits through Maurice Blackburn, industrial representation, employee advocacy and so on.

Needless to say it’s a no-brainer to become a union member. Your colleagues who aren’t members have also benefited from these early pay increases. So please pass this on to your colleagues and encourage them to become members too. Our ability to achieve these fantastic outcomes is only possible through being a collective.

If you know someone who isn’t a member of the union, ask them to join online today via https://www.asu.asn.au/asujoin
