Every ASU member is unique, and every workplace is different, but we stand together across the water industry to achieve better workplaces. We want you to have a real say on your next enterprise agreement.
Your current agreement does not expire until July 2022, however, GWM Water is bound by the State Government Public Sector Wages policy which has a wages cap of 1.5% for the next 4 years unless a 12month rollover option is taken.
Should members choose the option of a 12-month rollover, it is important to understand that a rollover does not allow bargaining for other claims. The only changes allowable under the wages policy is compliance changes.
If members decide to reject the 12-month rollover option and commence “normal” bargaining in 2022 it is important to understand that whilst you can then make claims for improvements to conditions and entitlements (subject to the wages policy framework) your wage increases would be capped at a maximum of 1.5% each year for 4 years.
GWM Water needs the Union’s in principle agreement for a 12-month rollover. We need to hear from you on what option you would like to take so it is vital you take the time to complete the quick survey.
Please respond by close of business Wednesday 22 September.
