Negotiations for a new Enterprise Agreement have just about concluded with Management responding in writing with a remuneration offer.

A memorandum was sent to all employees advising of the following offer:

  • 3% increase – from date of successful ‘yes’ vote to 30 June 2022
  • 3% (September CPI figure, Hobart 2021) applied from 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2023
  • September CPI figure, Hobart 2022 applied from 1 July 2023 to 30 June 2024

To date, negotiations have been positive and productive, and your ASU bargaining team have been able to improve the following conditions and entitlements:

Banking RDO’s
You can now bank TOIL for a period of up to 6 months instead of 28 days

Casual Loading
Increase casual loading rate from 20% to 25%

On-call allowances
Increased rate from $191.25/week to $255.59/week

Increase to all allowances in line with the annual wage increase per year, for the life of the agreement

Compassionate Leave
Increase to paid leave from 3 days to 5 days (interstate travel)

Paid Community Services Leave
10 days paid leave

Public Holidays
Easter Tuesday written into the agreement as a paid Public Holiday

Paid Family Violence Leave
Increase paid leave from 10 days to 20 days

Workload Clause
New clause added to the agreement to allow employees the ability to review their workloads.

A final meeting will be held early next week to discuss final steps and we anticipate we will also be setting a date for voting to take place. We will keep you up to date.

The ASU strongly recommend you provide any comments or feedback to your ASU delegates, Simon Whittington and Gary King before Monday 15 November 2021.
