The ASU held rounds of meetings with members in August to present and vote on Councils final offer.

Members endorsed Councils final offer in principle, subject to agreement on the final EA document as we also had to finalise the consolidation process inserting Part B into Part A.

Please see Yarra City Council final offer here.

We can confirm that we have reached full in principle agreement on the final EA document, and it is now nearly time to vote.

We now can confirm the following timeframes:

  • Access Period will commence on Wednesday 20 October 2021 and close on Friday 29 October 2021. The EA document will be published and shared on the intranet during this period for all staff to access or you can request a copy be emailed to you by contacting HR Services.
  • Voting Period will commence on Monday 1 November and close on Wednesday 10 November 2021. An independent voting company will handle the voting process and will send each eligible staff member an email with a link to vote. Staff can also vote via phone.
  • Announce Voting Outcome Thursday 11 November 2021.

If 50% plus 1 of the staff that vote, vote yes, the agreement will then be sent to Fair Work for the certification process.

Back pays will then be processed.

In the meantime, it’s never a better time to encourage your workmates to join the ASU so we can have a stronger voice for workers at Yarra City Council. It’s easy for anyone who is not yet a member to join online at
