It’s nearly here! The voting period for your Enterprise Agreement runs from 8am Thursday 24 February until 4:00pm on Monday 28 February 2022.

ASU representatives urge all employees to vote NO, every vote matters.

It’s important you take the time to vote and select NO. It’s also critical to talk to staff about it. Every single vote is important, and we can’t fix this without at least 50% of votes against the offer.

Why Vote No

Whilst we have agreement on some ASU claims, Council is putting a not-agreed EA out to a vote that doesn’t meet standards members consistently voted for in our meetings. This is your EA. It’s important to get a big turnout from staff to vote NO and get back to bargaining an agreeable outcome.

Reasons the ASU encourages you to vote NO:

  • No movement on the back pay offer – despite a very conservative counteroffer put on the table by ASU members of back pay until July 2021. Council have stuck to their offer of back pay from 1st December 2021.

If it’s voted down:

We will continue bargaining in good faith – this doesn’t mean starting from scratch. We are confident members would accept an offer that improved on the issue above. That would recognise their hard work and show them they are valued!
