Your Enterprise Agreement has successfully been voted up and 92% of the staff that voted have voted Yes.
The EA will now be prepared to be sent to Fair Work to be certified and once that has occurred it will become enforceable.
Usually, you would have to wait to receive your pay increase and back pay until the EA has been certified but Council have advised us that the Executive have endorsed for pay increases and backpays of salaries to be paid early. Council is intending on processing them in the next fortnightly pay run.
This is great news.
We will keep you updated on the certification process which will hopefully go through without any issues.
Please join us in thanking your ASU delegates for all the dedication and work they have put in during the EA negotiations as it has been a united team effort.
By encouraging your workmates to join the ASU we will have a stronger voice for workers at Yarra City Council. It is easy for anyone who is not yet a member to join online at www.asu.asn.au/asujoin
