To date the Andrews Government have mistreated you in the following ways:

  • Reneging on clauses which were agreed to.
  • Leaking confidential documents to the Herald Sun.
  • Misrepresenting the UFU’s bargaining position in the media.
  • Dragging out the enterprise Bargaining Process and delaying a new agreement.
  • Pretending to grant you a five percent increase when in reality such increase is not enforceable and can be taken away from you at any time by the employer.

                                       

Members will be provided with further detail over the coming weeks.

In the meantime please contact your shop steward to confirm your attendance at the Rally.
