We caught up with some of the genU management team today and we’ve finally locked in a date to kick off negotiations for your new agreement.
genU have committed to sending out the required notice of representational rights by 25 September, and the first negotiations meeting will be held on Tuesday 10 October.
This also means we can finalise a log of claims for you to vote on before bargaining. We are currently putting together a draft log of claims based on your survey answers. We’ll be sharing the draft log of claims with you from next week for your feedback and endorsement.
While we have an industrial team representing all HACSU members during negotiations, we’d love to have you or a few of your colleagues sit alongside us at the table. We will provide you with the materials and training you need. If you are interested in joining the HACSU bargaining team, please let us know. After all, you’ll directly experience the changes to your wages and conditions.
Following the first negotiations meeting on 10 October, we’ve scheduled three more meetings, each two weeks apart: 24 October, 6 November and 20 November. We’re hopeful that by then we will have an offer to take to you to consider, one that reflects the much-needed improved conditions and wages that you deserve and need.
The more members we have, the stronger our bargaining power for your wages and conditions. If you know a colleague who hasn’t yet joined HACSU, let them know that becoming a member is now as simple as a few clicks: join.hacsu.org.au
