Following ASU representations to your management team, a ballot of employees was undertaken to determine the appropriate CPI figure to be used for the 2022 and 2023 wage increases. This issue has now been satisfactorily resolved.
With a very strong ballot result, showing that 73% of employees agreed with the union position that the June CPI figure should be used each year, Central Coast Council’s General Manager, Sandra Ayton, has accepted this as the appropriate way to interpret CPI in your enterprise agreement for the remainder of the term of the agreement.
Following the resolution of this matter, a Memorandum of Understanding has been drawn up by the union and entered into between Central Coast Council and the ASU, on behalf of our members, to ensure that there is no risk of further misunderstandings in relation to this clause and that there is a well-defined method for applying wage increases for the remainder of the agreement term.
It’s through collective action, such as this ballot, that positive changes are made in your workplace and this result is a testament to the resolve of ASU members in your workplace.
