Save Equal Pay
In 2012 ASU members won 23% to 45% pay rises. The Fair Work Commission ordered that Equal Pay increases on our Award wages be phased in over eight years – with the final instalment in December 2020.
When ASU members won Equal Pay, state and federal government set aside special funds to cover our new higher rates of pay. This guaranteed funding until this year.
Now it’s clear that the federal government has not budgeted to lift the funding of programs into the future. The federal budget is due in October, so we must act now to Save Equal Pay.
If Equal Pay is not funded, jobs and services will be under threat.
Join with ASU delegates and activists from around the country at our urgent delegate and activist meeting to hear about the next steps in our campaign to Save Equal Pay.
