Council are offering pay rises of 1.5% per annum which is equal to this year’s rate cap. Every year since the rate cap has come in, the Minister has set the rate cap at CPI. CPI is supposed to reflect increases to the cost of living.

We all know that CPI does not really reflect the true cost of living increases:

  • Everyday bills such as electricity, water, groceries and insurance are increasing much faster than your pay packet;
  • Housing prices and rent are through the roof; and
  • If CPI increases in future years of this agreement you will be even further behind.

In addition, 0.5% of managements offer must be taken as superannuation. The ASU supports more money going into superannuation, but you should be able to take the cash if you choose.

It’s time to stand up and fight back. ASU members across Victoria are rejecting these pitiful offers and taking action for a better deal. Please come to one of the following meetings and let us know what you think of this offer. Potential members are welcome but must abstain from voting.
