Public Sector Unions Wages Agreement: Overwhelming Support for Log of Claims
CPSU Members have voted overwhelmingly in support for the log of claims for the next Wages and Conditions Agreement. The log of claims was unanimously supported by Members who attended the 18 briefings held around the state over the past fortnight and overall more that 98% of those who voted said yes to the log of claims.
The claim will now be served on the government and negotiations commenced.
The claim proposes a number of reforms to the way the public sector works – reforms that have the potential to deliver significant productivity improvements. Members expect that through these productivity savings the government will be able to deliver decent wage outcomes and provide job security guarantees.
CPSU General Secretary Tom Lynch said “I am extremely proud of the claim that Members have endorsed.” “It is forward looking and shows that union Members are interested in fair outcomes and driven by improving service delivery to the Tasmanian community.” “They have identified the areas that need to be improved and have offered practical solutions, which if implemented, will be good for both the community and the workers who serve it.” “I would like to thank all those who have been involved in the process of developing this claim over the past 5 months.”
