In a move the ASU sees as long overdue, and an essential step towards Council repairing their relationship with the ASU members, Executive Management have finally agreed to paid monthly meetings of ASU Delegates.
After repeatedly being denied paid monthly meetings, ASU Delegates decided to meet monthly in public, along with fellow members, to show their anger at the lack of cooperation from CoGG Executives.
We are now pleased to advise that CoGG have agreed to provide paid time each month for ASU Delegates to meet with ASU Officers as part of the important role they fulfil at Council.
Council have also indicated they want Staff Relations Consultative Committee (SRCC) meetings monthly instead of bi-monthly; a position that has also been strongly argued by the ASU.
Why is this important?
Delegates meetings allow your representatives to gain a whole of organisation perspective and, escalate and resolve issues appropriately so that working life for members is improved and a good workplace culture is maintained.
They also allow the ASU to provide clear, accurate and appropriate information to Council management and consultative committees around issues you raise, which saves time both for your Delegates and the Organisation in getting those issues resolved.
Will ASU members keep meeting publicly?
ASU Delegates and Officials are meeting on 21 August and will discuss the next steps regarding public meetings.
We’ll let you know as soon as a decision is made.
How do I become an ASU Delegate?
All ASU Delegates are elected by members in their workplace. This ensures that you choose the people to represent your industrial interests.
