Mirait Technologies: EA update

Negotiations for a new EA with Mirait Technologies continue. The company presented a new draft EA for discussion on Friday 8 April and the CWU is now consulting with members about the document. 

Crucially, Mirait has now agreed to change provisions in the EA which would have effectively required employees to work a 40 rather than a 38 hour week ie to work two extra hours over and above the standard 38 without paying overtime. 

The CWU considers that such a provision would breach the National Employment Standards. While Mirait said it disagreed, it appears that the company has decided not to test this issue before the Fair Work Commission. 

The CWU has also recently negotiated a number of other improvements to the proposed agreement including some in relation to higher duties payments and recall to work provisions.  During earlier discussions we negotiated the inclusion in the agreement of community service leave, meal allowances and minimum notice periods for project arrangements. 

The CWU will meet again with Mirait when it has received feedback from members on the latest draft agreement, probably during the week beginning 18 April.
