ESTA Members Vote YES to Industrial Action – UPDATE!
JOINT BULLETIN: The Victorian Ambulance Union Incorporated (VAU), Communications Electrical Plumbing Union (CEPU), United Firefighters’ Union (UFU) and United Workers Union (UWU) yesterday received the results of the Protected Action Ballot conducted for ESTA employees in support of their application to take Industrial Action. Over 75% of eligible Union members working at ESTA cast a vote in this highly important ballot.
Of the members who cast a vote, most voted in favour of all the actions. 96% of members voted YES.
Congratulations to all those members!
This is a strong result which reinforces the disappointment and anger currently felt by our ESTA members after nearly 12 months of bargaining. The voting results show the extent of the engagement shown by members. We will keep you all informed of the next steps as we move towards taking the first actions over the coming days and weeks.
Stay tuned for these important updates via Bulletins and Facebook posts. The Unions will provide you with the information you need to make informed choices about how to participate in industrial action.
