Last week the Fair Work Commission notified the parties that the DMO/TO Agreement has been signed, sealed, and delivered.

The Agreement will come into effect on February 26, with payrises and backpay to be processed shortly thereafter.

This is a fantastic outcome delivering payrises of 3.75% effective 11 January 2018, then 3.5%, 3.25%, and 3.5% in subsequent years. It also delivers an incremental increase in the availability allowance up to 5.5% over the first two years of the agreement.

On top of this, we achieved a public sector leading secure work clause that guarantees no forced redundancies during the life of the Agreement.

Congratulations to all of our fantastic members and delegates on this great outcome.

With the new Agreement comes a new consultative committee, and ASU is seeking nominations for representatives on this committee.

It is a very rewarding process, and provides a unique opportunity to have a real say in the issues that affect your workplace.
