Management has put out an EA offer that is substantially the same as the one that was previously voted down by a majority of employees previously. They have simply moved the $1,400 sign-on bonus into the wage offer as a 0.3% increase to the offer.
Despite our feedback, they have refused to move on the wages offer since we last met with members, and they continue to refuse to maintain your superannuation entitlements.
It’s time to stand strong and VOTE NO again.
For some time now, your wages have not kept up with the cost of living and are going backwards in real terms. Your wages are increasing slower than the Award rate which sees you getting closer and closer to the MINIMUM that employers LEGALLY have to pay you.
Talking hasn’t been working, so is it now time to take action to ensure that council hears you?
