No agreement on Broadcast Australia pay rise

The CWU and other bargaining representatives remain at odds with Broadcast Australia (BA) over the pay rise in the next Enterprise Agreement (EA). 

Members are looking for a rise of 4% per annum but to date BA has been unwilling to consider anything beyond 2.3% or CPI, whichever is higher. 

Official national CPI is currently running at 2.1% per annum, but this figure can mask regional differences and, notoriously, does not capture all the impacts of increases in housing costs. 

The CWU met with BA on 28 June to negotiate this and other unresolved EA issues. These include a number of late items arising from unexpected changes to the current EA that surfaced when the first draft of a new agreement was circulated by management. 

It appears some of these changes may simply be drafting errors. However, others appear to have intentional impacts on current conditions of employment and will require further attention. 

The CWU anticipates a further meeting in the next 10-14 days but a date has yet to be agreed.
