EBA negotiations update

We met with Corumbene management and their industrial advocate last week to continue bargaining for the new staff agreement but it was pretty much a non-event as we're still working though the draft, which we’ll keep doing at the next meeting.

Corumbene haven’t budged on their 2% wages offer and they still haven’t agreed to put any members' claims in the draft agreement.

They also said no to back-pay and haven’t yet made a decision on stat decs as they claim staff can already use them – but that’s only in extraordinary circumstances - and we think that’s unfair and restrictive, so we’ve asked them to reconsider and get back to us at the next meeting.

We’ll keep members updated with any news as we continue to negotiate for better wages and conditions.
