We are pleased to advise that following your vote to not roll over the CFA PTA Agreement, the ASU has sought and received agreement from CFA Management on two crucial issues. They have agreed that if the ASU now agree to roll over the existing PTA agreement, CFA will commit to;
- Backdating the 2.5% pay increase to the first full pay period following the expiry of the existing Agreement, so it will take effect as at 15 December 2020 and;
- Bargaining for the new agreement will commence immediately and without delay
This now removes any concerns we had about the proposed rollover, and should you endorse this proposal, we will be able to negotiate your new agreement starting now, AND you will get a 2.5% pay increase backdated to 15 December.
There is now no disadvantage or impediment to rolling over the existing PTA EA.
On that basis, we now recommend that ASU members endorse this proposal, but it is ultimately up to you.
You will receive an email shortly asking you to vote in our new ballot of members on this proposal. We recommend and endorse a ‘yes’ vote. Voting closes at 5pm next Friday, January 29.
This would not have been possible without the amazing work of your ASU delegates. We have always maintained that this is about getting the best possible agreement for members, CFA as a whole, and the community.
