TasWater’s offensive agreement rejected!
THE VOTE is in and TasWater Members have overwhelmingly rejected the proposed EBA (both general and senior) put forward by TasWater management.
The return rate was extremely high See the results below.
GENERAL ENTERPRISE AGREEMENT
87.8% NO to 11.7% YES
SENIOR ENTERPRISE AGREEMENT
82.4% NO to 17.6% YES
By rejecting the EBA in its current form, the Single Bargaining Unit (SBU) can now show management that their offer is not acceptable and that Members are determined to get back to the table and negotiate a reasonable offer in good faith!
Where to from here
The SBU will write to TasWater management immediately to seek a return to the bargaining table as soon as possible to continue negotiations.
