ACMA negotiations to resume

Negotiations for an Enterprise Agreement (EA) in the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) are set to resume, with meetings proposed for the 7 and 15 of September.

Negotiations were frozen during the federal election campaign in line with the usual “caretaker” provisions that apply to government once an election has been called.

These require that government not make any major decisions that could limit the policy options of an incoming government after the election.

The return of the Coalition government means that negotiations will now resume on the same basis as before i.e. with a maximum pay offer of 2% per annum in exchange for reductions in working conditions and no back pay.

To date this approach has not proven popular with ACMA staff who have already voted down one proposed agreement.
