SCC working conditions

SCC management have finally listened to you and your bargaining team and will now send a new agreement out for ballot that has restored nearly all of the entitlements they were trying to steal from you.
By standing together, you have stopped them from:

  • Paying your superannuation contributions only every 3 months - keeping them monthly
  • Taking away paid meal breaks for shift workers
  • Making you produce more medical certificates for personal leave
  • Being able to roster you for 10 hours without paying you overtime
  • Removing your days of work and hours of work from your employment contract

In campaigning to keep these conditions, you have also achieved:

  • A 3% pay rise per year including backpay to July 2021
  • Improved conditions in the event of a redundancy
  • Better higher duties payments
  • Payment of police checks and working with vulnerable people checks
  • 3% a year increases to allowances including travel rates

The only condition SCC has refused to restore is the 45 minutes handover provision which they are still reducing to 15 minutes. But all in all, you have achieved plenty by collectively campaigning with your colleagues! SCC have indicated they will shortly put the agreement out to vote. We’ve asked them to send us a draft agreement for review urgently. We will be holding member catch-ups at all the SCC worksites across the state over the next couple of weeks to chat with you about this offer.
