Enterprise Bargaining is about reviewing and improving workplace entitlements and conditions. ASU officials and delegates aims, when we meet with Yarra City Council  management is to negotiate improvements to existing conditions and introduce new entitlements, when possible lift industry standards and ensure members needs and concerns are brought to management’s attention to be addressed.

Why have an Enterprise Agreement?
Your award sets out a broad industry minimum of conditions to cover you in your workplace. Your enterprise agreement allows us to set out specific conditions and tailor clauses to suit your workplace. An enterprise agreement has the same legal enforcement as an award.

How can you get involved?
The ASU officials and delegates are committed to bargaining for better conditions for your workplace. The ASU bargains across your industry.  We want your voice to be strong during negotiations! If you are not a union member it is really important you join today to show you support ASU members aim to improve workplace conditions.

By encouraging your workmates to join the ASU we will have 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

The first meet and greet enterprise bargaining meeting was held on Thursday 23rd January 2020 and the next meeting is scheduled for Thursday 12th March 2020 in which we go through the principles of bargaining and commence the official negotiations.

But to do this we need to hear from you so the ASU will be holding management approved paid meetings across your council so please find one that suits and come along. Non members are welcome to attend but will not be able to vote.
