We’re off the the Fair Work Commission tomorrow to stop Ballarat Council from standing down workers. These outdoor workers can continue to be usefully employed and the City of Ballarat is way out of line. We won’t put up with members being treated like this. It’s time the City of Ballarat was kind to its own workers and stopped the planned stand-downs. ... See MoreSee Less

Some good news amongst the hard stuff right now! A bunch of ASU members at Ermha, including Virginia & Julie below, have signed up for Coastrek – a team trekking challenge to raise funds to support mental health in Australia. All going well they will be walking a long way on Friday 22 May! As workers supporting people experiencing mental health conditions, they’re going an extra mile to support programs and services that make a difference in people’s lives.
To help support their efforts to make a difference to mental health in Australia and sponsor their trek go to: www.coastrek.com.au/fundraisers/ermha2

Women are increasingly feeling pressured by demands to work from home during a time when schools are also closed as ordered by the state. We have been hearing stories in which employers are expecting the same work to be delivered as usual DURING A WORLDWIDE PANDEMIC!
We have been speaking to women workers who tell us they are feeling pressured to quit or take unpaid leave in order to care for children who now must be at home. Do not take these options, call your union for advice! ... See MoreSee Less
