Bargaining at Westernport Water has commenced, and management has put an offer to the ASU.
We now have the option of either accepting a 1-year ‘rollover’ on the Agreement with a 2.5% pay increase or continuing to bargain around our log of claims.
If we accept the 2.5% ‘rollover’ it will mean we will be back to negotiations early next year.
However, if we do continue to bargain for a longer agreement The Victorian Government Wages Policy requires that the employer reduce the wages offer to 2% p/a over four years.
So now it’s over to you.
The ASU is conducting a poll of members at Westernport Water to determine which way to go on this offer. Vote below to tell us which path you prefer:
a) Accept the 2.5% rollover now or;
b) Continue to bargain around the log of claims
You can complete the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VP5CLBG
Please complete this survey no later than next Friday 20th September.
