Optus award update

The CWU and Optus attended a conference before the Fair Work Commission on 7 May to deal with a number of issues relating to the modernisation of the Optus award.

The Commission decided last year that Optus should retain an enterprise award rather than be covered by the general industry award, the Telecommunications Services Award 2010. 

But not all details of the new award were finalised at that time.

The conference of 7 May dealt largely with some technical issues relating to the minimum wage rates in the new award and with a number of variations to the current award proposed by the CWU.

It was agreed that the CWU and Optus would attempt to resolve these matters between them rather than taking them to a Full Bench of the Commission. We expect to meet with Optus on these questions during the coming week.
