The ACS, as a "professional organisation" tends not to concern itself that
heavily with bread-and-butter issues. As far as I can tell, its emphasis
is not on awards and conditions, work and workplace standards, and I
suspect it is certainly not interested in becoming part of the ACTU.

Ah well. Now there's two of us. Trouble will be brewing soon. We should
talk on Saturday about this.

All the best,
