Members increase options at Cassowary Coast

As your ally in the workplace at Cassowary Coast Regional Council, The Services Union knows that the best bargaining results happen with maximum member participation. In response to the Council’s latest undercooked pay offer, you and your fellow members have voted strongly in support of Protected Industrial Action (PIA).

Our Union remains open to further pay discussions with the Council, including the meeting proposed for 8 March. Your strong majority vote supporting PIA means our Union now has additional tools at our disposal if those discussions do not yield an improved offer. Should that be the case, the best results will once again be achieved with maximum member participation in planning as well as in delivery. If you are interested in representing your work group on our Union’s Strike Committee to help decide on where and when action should be taken, please contact your Workplace Delegate Jason Hemingway or your organiser Glenn Desmond

The bargaining process is rarely simple, particularly in the current economic climate. The Services Union knows from experience that getting involved is key to getting it done. If you work with someone who is not yet a member and wants a better deal,  joining is easy online
