Employees have overwhelmingly voted to agree to the terms of new ASU and Slater and Gordon Lawyers’ Agreement, which was negotiated and recommended by the ASU S+G National Negotiating Team.
The independent company who conducted the ballot has declared that the new agreement has been approved by a majority of staff – 91% of employees who voted in the ballot voted in favour of the new agreement, which is a very strong endorsement of the agreement that was negotiated.
While there are still some formalities to complete, including the approval of the agreement by the Fair Work Commission, you can expect your backpay in the next pay period. Please contact your local delegate or organiser for any questions about your backpay.
The agreement will commence 7 days after it is approved by the Fair Work Commission – we will let you know once this happens.
Thank You to the National Negotiation Team and ASU Members
It was only because of the tireless work of your ASU delegates that we were able to reach this agreement. You will recall that these negotiations were hard-fought and tough, but because of the unity and support shown by ASU members we were able to achieve this final outcome that will deliver significant benefits to employees.
