Click here to register for the ASU EBA meeting on 8 July. AEMO management is trying to rush through a new EBA without the agreement of your bargaining representatives. They’ve broken off negotiations, and will soon ask AEMO employees to vote up their sub-standard EBA.
AEMO management’s proposed EBA has several big problems:
- A 1.5% pay increase in July 2021. Reserve Bank forecasts that inflation will increase by 3.25% in the year to June 2021. This is a pay cut! This is followed by 2% pay increases in 2022 and 2023, which are also likely to be below inflation.
- Many (slightly more) senior employees will be cut out of EBA coverage. While the company has promised to ‘red-circle’ people in their current roles, the new scope means that you could be taken off the EBA if you were promoted or transferred within the company
- A new classification system that isn’t transparent. The company’s proposal would allow AEMO management to pick and choose where people sit in the classification structure. There should be objective criteria to set pay, so people who do the same work are paid the same rates.
- No entitlement to paid leave to escape domestic violence.
The ASU will be holding a meeting of members at 11.00AEM Eastern Time (9.00AM WA Time) on Thursday, 8 July to discuss our response to managements shoddy offer. Members will be voting on our response. If you aren’t a member please join us for the discussion.
