ACMA bargaining: no good news for Xmas

The bargaining stalemate at the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) continues.

The CWU and other involved unions met with ACMA on Monday 14 December.

At the meeting, ACMA reiterated its position that it could offer no improvement on its latest offer unless the unions could put forward a reasonable counter-proposal i.e. significant trade-offs in return for an increase in the current wage offer.

ACMA has recently increased its wage offer to 6% over three years (2.5%, 2%, 1.5%) in line with the slight relaxation of government policy in this area earlier this year.

But ACMA union members have told their representatives that this offer is still unacceptable, especially since they have had a wage freeze for nearly two years.

The CWU understands that ACMA is hoping to put its proposed agreement out for a vote in January.

The unions will be proposing that if a vote is to be held, it should be in February when participation rates are likely to be higher and the vote be a more accurate reflection of employee views.
