CPSU and MEAA bargaining teams have met with the ABC management team to give a preliminary outline of our respective claims.

You can view the claims here – ABC proposal  and Joint Union Log of Claims.

Detailed discussions will kick off at the next meeting on 20 July with the following items slated for the first round of discussions:

  • A fairer system for the payment of overtime, and workloads (both from the Joint Union Log of Claims); and
  • The ABC’s proposal for a new salary package arrangement.

ABC reps also confirmed they will be issuing the Notice of Employee Representational Rights (NERR). This is a requirement under the Fair Work Act and signals the employer's commitment to bargain.

Report back meetings from negotiations will be scheduled for after our next meeting.
