As you would be aware, the ASU has been pressuring Slater and Gordon to pay back pay from 2014 to Law Clerks and paralegals for a while now. Management has finally agreed to pay this, so law clerks/ paralegals should be watching out for the payment to hit your bank accounts shortly. If you have any questions about this, contact your local ASU representatives.
In the meantime, following the very well-attended national members meeting on 18 June your ASU representatives have been involved in some marathon meetings with management in relation to the Lawyers and Law Clerks Enterprise Agreement. We think some significant and positive progress has been made in some key areas. There is still a fair way to go, so we will be meeting with management again on Friday 10 July and will let you know of any significant developments.
We are hopeful that we will be in a position to report back to our members after the next meeting so watch out for meeting details.
If you have any questions please contact a member of the national negotiation team or your local organiser.
