With You Every Step Of The Way

Late last year our ASU Branch Council formally endorsed the next stage of our ASU Proud Agenda. We want to build on the incredible achievements of our past. We want to grow our Union’s strength and capacity to organise and support members when and where it’s needed. We want to be with members Every Step Of The Way.

We want to be with members when they are:

Studying and commencing employment:

  • increasing our ASU Student Members engagement
  • providing industrial advice for first timer job seekers
  • supporting members when they’re thinking about moving jobs

Advancing careers:

  • providing career support training
  • providing professional development training through the Teachers Learning Network
  • campaigning and advocacy for career paths

Dealing with issues at work:

  • expanding our Member Assistance Line to provide greater advice about healthy work practices and work-life balance
  • increasing the number of local delegates and expanding our delegate development program
  • continuing to campaign for dignity and respect across all divisions of our Union

Experiencing significant life changes:

  • providing tailored resources and industrial support for members accessing Parental Leave, Flexible Work Arrangements, Carers Leave or extended periods of leave
  • partnering with solicitors Slater+Gordon who provide conveyancing, Family Law advice Will kits, and generalist legal services
  • partnering with numerous Industry Superannuation Funds who provide financial planning advice

Dealing with the necessities of daily living:

  • providing member services like discounted groceries and petrol to assist with managing the costs of living
  • partnering with Union Health who provide members with discounted health insurance and other health-related services

Preparing for and transitioning to retirement:

  • providing tailored resources and industrial support for members transitioning to retirement
  • partnering with numerous Industry Superannuation Funds who provide financial planning advice, holding local forums and seminars
  • supporting our Forever ASU Proud Network (FAN), continuing to campaign for equality and dignity in retirement for all

There is so much we need to achieve in 2019 but I know that together we can do it.

The first step is to hear from you. ASU Deputy Secretary Judith Wright and I will be meeting with members to discuss Every Step Of The Way. and hear your ideas about how we can continue to make you ASU Proud. If you’re interested in holding a workplace meeting register your details today.
