Taylor Rail NSW Enterprise Agreement 2015

Dec 15, 2015Bulletins

Bulletin 65

To: All RTBU NSW Taylor Rail Members

The RTBU and your representatives met with management last week following substantial feedback from Members regarding Taylor Rail’s (the Company) proposed changes for your new Enterprise Agreement (EA), which is as follows:

  • 3 Year Agreement;
  • Monday to Sunday Rostered Working (your current EA provides for a Monday to Friday 38 hour week + Overtime);
  • Changes to the Rostering Principles;
  • Changes to the Counselling and Disciplinary procedure;
  • Reduced Entry Level Pay Point.

It was made extremely clear to the Company that the above proposed changes would not be accepted with what was currently being offered. In order to secure the above package arrangement, the Company is now prepared to offer RTBU Members the following:

  • 3% Pay rise per year;
  • 3 Year Agreement;
  • Back Pay to apply from October 2015;
  • A Saturday Compensation Allowance;
  • 1 Weeks additional annual leave (after incurring one Saturday penalty);
  • Weekly pay cycle.

It is very important that you feed your comments regarding this proposal back to your local delegates or the Union office ASAP in preparation for our next meeting.

The RTBU would like to thank the continued support and efforts of your representatives and all RTBU Members during these long and hard negotiations.

The RTBU would like to wish all its Taylor Rail Members a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
