The State Government has revised its Wages Policy, and SEW management has sought the view of the ASU regarding how we want to proceed with the South East Water Enterprise Agreement 2022.
Under the new wages policy, any public sector enterprise agreements that expire in 2022 can either be rolled over for one year with a 2% payrise, or we can negotiate a full agreement with annual payrises of 1.5%.
The ASU does not agree with or condone this policy, and we have made this clear to SEW management. But we are seeking your view as an indication of how to proceed. So we will be holding a lunchtime members meeting tomorrow, Thursday June 17 at 12 noon.
