The ASU is meeting with members at Surf Coast to hear your view on the Management offer received last week.
ASU Organiser, Clay O’Brien, has held meetings at the Winchelsea Depot and the Torquay Depot to discuss Management’s bargaining position and hear the views of ASU members.
We have also set up an online meeting for you to share your views:
Date: Tuesday, 26 July 2022
Time: 12:30pm – 1:30pm

To summarise the Surf Coast position: They have rejected the overwhelming majority of the claims made by the union and other bargaining representatives, and have offered –
Year 1: 1.75% plus a one-off payment of $1000 for Bands 1-3 and $500 for Band 4
Year 2: 2% or the rate cap, whichever is higher
Year 3: 2% or the rate cap, whichever is higher
The cost of everything is going up – fuel, groceries, electricity, rent, mortgage repayments – and all experts predict this situation will become worse before it gets better, and yet Surf Coast Management have offered what amounts to a significant pay cut in real terms.
It is a fact workplaces with higher rates of union membership receive better outcomes for their pay and conditions. The best way to win a fair and decent pay rise is to have a strong ASU presence in your workplace. We encourage all Surf Coast employees to join the union today.
