CFW grading dispute: FWC to arbitrate

The CWU remains in dispute with Telstra over the grading of Service Delivery field technicians as CFW4s when they are performing what the union believes is complex work for business customers. 

When the E-bulletin last reported on this case in early March (E-bulletin #3), Telstra had been told by the Fair Work Commission (FWC) to make available any documentation relevant to the case. 

But when the initial date for handing over the material arrived, Telstra told the FWC that it didn’t consider its production necessary. Vice President Catanzariti took a different view and issued an order that relevant documents be produced. 

The matter will now go to arbitration on 29 May where it will be heard by Commissioner Johns. Members will be advised of developments.
