NBN Co preparing to bypass unions on EA

NBN Co has confirmed that it is preparing to put a number of proposed Enterprise Agreements (EAs) out to employees for a vote despite the fact that no agreement has been reached with their representatives, the unions.

NBN Co has a number of separate EAs, each negotiated with a different union and covering a different operational area.

What the proposed new EAs all have in common, however, is the fact they reflect the federal government’s “no pain, no gain” policy for Commonwealth employees i.e. no wage rise without cuts to conditions, and even then not much of a rise anyway.

It is this policy, not employee’s or unions’ unreasonable demands, that has sabotaged EA negotiations.

The CWU has not yet sighted the proposed EA for technical employees but expects to do so next week. It will then be consulting with members about our response to the “offer”.
