Update 10, Wednesday August 30
GET THE FACTS ON YOUR AGREEMENT
Your union representatives have now had 8 meetings with management. We have put to them a plan to,
- Secure good jobs and make sure contract labour is not used to drive down wages and conditions;
- Protect a fair and transparent redeployment process with redundancy as the last option;
- Maintain our voice and our vote when changes happen at work (Clause 12 – the facilitation clause);
- Ensure workers have access to leave and support when they are involved in a critical incident or domestic violence.
Management has responded with a scheme to chip away at our hard won rights and conditions -this needs to stop.
Your union representatives will meet with management again next week. Following that meeting, there will be a delegates’ conference on the 12th September and membership meetings will begin after that. These meetings will be your chance to get the details of what has happened in negotiations so far and have your say on what conditions you are ready to fight for. Keep an eye out for more details.
There has never been a more important time to be a union member. To join, call your union today!
