Melbourne’s Meter Maids


meter-maids-2FREE parking, free food, no rate payments? If this sounds like the sort of place you’d like to live, get yourself down to Melbourne’s outer east ASAP.
Council workers could support industrial action at a dispute at the City of Casey over pay and increased workload which would mean freebies all round in the form of meals on wheels and no traffic wardens.
The union wants a pay rise of 14.3 per cent over three years, while the council is offering 13.3 per cent, Mr Grattan said. Also in dispute are career progression rates.
In an email to staff, Casey chief executive Mike Tyler said the council’s offer was a ‘’good one” and its final position.
Sure it is. Expect them to buckle before you’ve even finished the end of this story.
