More than 300 Gosford City Council staff from all depots, offices and services have passed a motion of no confidence in CEO Paul Anderson and his management team.
A show of strong collective action unfolded at a number of USU member meetings held over Wednesday 17th, and Thursday 18th June 2015. Members mobilised across the Gosford City Council area with meetings held at the Erina, Woy Woy, and Mangrove Mountain Depots, and the Gosford City Council Administration Building. A cross-section of USU members from all areas of Gosford City Council were in attendance, which resolved a vote of ‘No-Confidence’ in the CEO Paul Anderson and the overall management of Gosford City Council.
The USU has met with Ausgrid regarding the USU dispute to stop Ausgrid's attempts to change the employment status of its employees because they requested flexible work arrangements due to carer's responsibilities.
In a throwback to the medieval dark age, Ausgrid has changed a longstanding practice where employees who have returned from parental leave on a part-time flexible arrangement can return back to their full-times- hours once those flexible arrangements are no longer required.
The United Services Union recently sought to organise another series of USU member meetings to discuss important industrial issues as has regularly occurred for many years. However, Council bosses have decided to cease the reasonable practice of allowing USU members to meet with their Union in paid time to participate and discuss these issues. Council has informed the USU the only method members will have to meet with their Union will be in their own time or lunch breaks.
