Equal Work Equal Pay


After a long-fought battle, ASU members won Equal Pay – now it’s time to celebrate!

On 1 December 2012 -- the first Equal Pay Day -- all NSW and ACT SACS workers began receiving their first ASU Equal Pay increase. This is the first of eight Equal Pay increases coming to workers because of the ASU's successful Equal Pay case and campaign. The case and campaign has resulted in wage increase of well over between 23% – 45% over the next eight years!
