uncertainty ahead

Telstra restructure creating uncertainty says CWU

While reporting of the organisational changes being introduced in Telstra has naturally enough focussed on the resulting job losses, many of the queries that the CWU has been receiving from members relate to ongoing conditions of employment in the company.

The restructuring that Telstra is undertaking is extensive and will involve changes in line control for thousands of employees.  CWU members are asking whether these changes might also involve changes to working conditions and/or work locations.          

At our meeting with Telstra on 15 June, the CWU asked for more detailed information on the organisational changes and for assurances about their impacts on employees, over and above the question of redundancies.

Telstra has subsequently confirmed the changes will have no impact on current RDO arrangements – an issue raised by some of our members.  

As members are probably aware, eligibility for RDOs no longer depends on work/business unit location but on the past eligibility of individual employees.

As for relocations (other than in circumstances of redeployment), Telstra said this was unlikely but has undertaken to clarify this issue.

Employees’ core conditions of employment are, of course, protected by the current Enterprise Agreement which will continue to apply until late 2018.
