Enterprise bargaining at the ATO and ASU site visits
Ned Kelly made this Freedom of Information request to Australian Taxation Office
This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.
Dear Australian Taxation Office,
I request all documents related to any payments made by the ATO to the Australian Services Union or ASU officials that are in any way connected with visits to ATO sites by ASU officials, for the purpose of enterprise bargaining or related matters associated with the 2017 ATO Enterprise Agreement.
While you may publish all correspondence on your website in relation to this request, I expect all correspondence to be sent to this email address in the first instance; I do not consider it appropriate for you to expect me to visit your website to hunt down correspondence in relation to this request.
Thank you for your response.
Can you please confirm if all expenditure for payments to the ASU were for travel by ATO employees only?
I understand the ASU secretary travelled to various ATO sites in the lead-up to the latest voting period (but after bargaining had concluded). Was this travel ATO funded? Did any other expenditure relate to travel by non-ATO ASU employees?
Dear Mr Kelly
We refer to our FOI decision letter of Friday 8 September 2017.
Expenditure was only for travel by ASU officials who are ATO employees.
