ASU representatives have been bargaining for a new Enterprise Agreement with BoQ management on members’ behalf

Following a recent resounding NO Vote by staff, management held feedback sessions to find out what staff wanted to help progress the EA.

These feedback sessions led to some 7 pages of requests from BoQ staff. But clearly, management did not listen.

Late last week, management provided the ASU with a pathetic attempt to address the ideas of staff.

Their new offer is a sign on bonus of $200.00 to staff who work less than 50% of full-time hours and $400.00 to those who work more than 50% of full-time hours

  • There was no attempt to address the discrimination of Community Services Staff being unable to progress through the Bands
  • There was no attempt to offer extra hours to permanent staff before offering them to contractors
  • There was no attempt to address the below average pay offer

We are urging our members to send a message to management that this latest offer is unacceptable.

Please send your thoughts, ideas and comments on management’s new offer to ASU Lead Organiser, Mark Brady, at by no later than midday Friday 7 June.

ASU representatives then take this feedback to management on your behalf at the next EA meeting.
