On your behalf, the ASU lodged a dispute against DCC for not adhering to good faith bargaining provisions. The dispute has been listed for mention today (19 October) at 3pm. Ideally, if the dispute was found in our favour, the ballot would cease, but, the likely outcome will be that it will be listed for hearing later and it is likely the ballot will still commence on Friday at 9am.
That’s why we need to send DCC a strong message with a comprehensive NO VOTE! to their proposed agreement.
FACTS TO CONSIDER WHEN VOTING
- DCC recorded a $46.7 million surplus this year
- The GM received a 10.7% salary increase equating to $32,154.00 pa
- Senior management received $927,799 in salaries last financial year
- The top 3 money earners received $764,450 in salaries at an increase of between 4% – 14%pp
Throughout negotiations, DCC has claimed that budgeting will not allow for any more than a 2% increase (total annual cost $278,620). Now that the annual report reflects a $4.67 million surplus and increases to senior management salaries of between 4% – 14% highlights just how measly the offer is. VOTE NO! so that we can get DCC back to the table and fight for better wages and conditions.
You all contributed to achieving a large surplus so, why should this be absorbed by senior management who don’t feel the effects of cost-of-living increases to the extent as us in rank-and-file positions?
