You might be aware that Yarra Ranges Shire Council has reversed its approach to the tendering out of Home and Community Care Services.

The ASU has been advocating on behalf of its members for several months to keep services in house. This week we were informed that a recommendation not to tender services out will go before Council and that Council will be adopting that recommendation.

This represents a major win for ASU members and we are pleased to see YRSC taking a positive approach regarding these services.

You would also be aware that we are commencing negotiations for a new enterprise agreement. We are currently finalising a log of claims and will, once Covid Restrictions ease, be meeting with members to get your feedback, both on the ASU’s claim and Council’s proposals. We look forward to catching up.

As always, the ASU is By Your Side
