STA Salaried and Administration Award Negotiations

Jan 25, 2021News

Bulletin No. 5.21

As 2020 came to an end, we received confirmation that STA had been given permission from the NSW Government to commence negotiations for the STA Salaried and Administration Award.

These negotiations are taking place in a hostile and ever-changing environment, with the NSW Government freezing public sector workers’ wages and ploughing ahead with their privatisation agenda.

We invited members to fill in an online survey telling us what they want from negotiations.

On Tuesday, January 12, an online meeting was held, providing members with the opportunity to ask any questions and endorse the log of claims.

We promoted the meeting via a bulletin sent to members personal email addresses and SMS reminders.

At the meeting, RTBU members endorsed the below log of claims, which we will put forward in the upcoming negotiations.

Log of Claims

To keep all our current entitlements and conditions in the Award.
To seek a pay increase of 2.5% per annum or CPI, whichever is greatest.
A two-year Award to protect members through the transition period to a private provider.

Working from home guidelines to be applied consistently across all business units.

Union Representatives will commence discussions with STA Management over the coming weeks and keep members updated as negotiations progress.

If you have any questions or would like to be involved in the negotiation, get in touch with your workplace delegate or organiser, Helen Bellette, by emailing hbellette@rtbu-nsw.asn.au

It is only by sticking together we will be able to get a positive outcome for members. If your workmates are not members of a Union now is the time to join!
