24 Hour Walk Off Sunday for Speed Camera Operators

Serco Snub Fair Work Solution

Two Hundred (200) mobile road safety camera operators will walk off for 24 hours on Sunday to protest Serco's failure to resolve the safety and pay concerns in this long running dispute.

Serco has snubbed the solutions put forward by Fair Work despite requesting Fair Work assistance to help in finding a settlement.

CPSU received a revised wage offer, as suggested by the Fair Work Commission to Serco Asia pacific Pty Ltd , which turned out to be the same amount overall, just re-mixed.

The new offer does not include weekend penalties and just shifts money forward from the total amount already offered in years two (2) and three (3) which was previously rejected overwhelmingly by operators.

Serco also declined the Fair Work Commission's suggestion to include performance in the dispute settlement clause.  

CPSU asserts both performance and misconduct should be included in the disputes clause within the Agreement to ensure procedural fairness and natural justice.

Serco wants to be judge, jury, and executioner leaving employees vulnerable without an independent umpire for transparent resolution of their grievances.

Serco still remains silent on operator suggestions for safety improvements while at work.

Serco is just thumbing their nose at the State Government, the industrial umpire, and its own workforce, as it refuses to move on any key matters.

In light of this employer intransigence, it is crucial that the Serco workforce maintain pressure and continue the fight for fair wages and safer work conditions.

More stoppages are planned.

Urgent call for youth homelessness funding after 18 years of neglect

Council to Homeless Persons (CHP) has urged the Victorian Government to tackle the youth homelessness crisis with a comprehensive strategy in the upcoming state budget. As homelessness among young Victorians reaches critical levels, immediate action is needed to provide both housing and support services. CHP CEO Deborah Di Natale said: "The last youth homelessness strategy released 18 years ago is now old enough to vote. "That should be a major wake-up call for the Allan government, which has a huge opportunity to end almost two decades of neglect. "Nearly 16,000 young Victorians found themselves seeking help from homelessness services last…
