Negotiations finally moving in the right direction.

We met with Corumbene management and their industrial advocate again earlier in the week to continue bargaining for your new general agreement.
The meeting mainly focused on the nurses agreement again and not a lot was said about the general agreement, so we asked Corumbene to make an offer that we can take out to members and see what you think.
Amazingly, management gave us an in-principle offer yesterday with better wage increases and backpay:

  • 3-year agreement
  • 1st year: 2% wage increase (July 2020)
  • 2nd year: 2.5% wage increase (July 2021)
  • 3rd year: 2.25% wage increase (July 2022)
  • Backpay to apply from July 2020
  • Good faith early payment after a Yes vote, before Fair Work agreement approval

We’ll be visiting your Corumbene staff room on Wednesday 9 December at 10am to get members' feedback on the offer.

For more info please ring 1300 880 032 and ask to speak to Sharon.
