A fair vote for Mornington Peninsula Shire Council staff

Defer the vote on our EBA until after Australia Day 2017 and have it conducted by the Victorian Electoral Commission.

Why is this important?

We are concerned about the voting process on our Enterprise Agreement for the following reasons:

• Voting for the Enterprise Agreements will only be able to be completed online and that staff who do not have access to a computer will be denied a vote.
• Staff need to input their employee number and Council will be able to track who voted “yes” and who voted “no”.
• Many staff will be on leave when the voting takes place including School Crossing Supervisors and staff who work at two leisure centres that shut down for three weeks from 16 December.
• Staff will be unable to scrutineer the vote as it will be counted electronically in Queensland. ASU delegates have always been present in previous years to scrutineer the vote count.


Reasons for signing

  • To support my work colleagues.
  • Transparency, accountability and a fair go for all (equality)
  • Their seems a genuine fear of distrust with the proposed election.
