It’s time to vote on a new Parks & Wildlife Agreement. After months of hard work by Delegates, negotiations, backflips from the Department and the threat of industrial action by members – we finally have a proposed Parks & Wildlife Agreement that reflects the in-principle agreement reached in November.
Affected members should have received their ballot via SurveyMonkey – so be sure to check your junk inbox and contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you haven’t received yours! All responses are anonymous and results will be shared collectively.
The ballot will remain open until this Friday 21 October.
What’s on the Table:
We’ve developed a handy flyer that takes you through the details of the proposed agreement. If you have any questions or wish to seek clarification on any part of the offer, contact CPSU Organiser Mathew Woolhouse at mailto:email@example.com at 0407 637 735.
We’ve also got more information on the agreed Broadbanding Pilot and the points based eligibility criteria. You can find those details here.
We want to acknowledge and thank our hard-working CPSU Delegates for their countless hours of work to get us to this point. They took on the task of modernising an outdated and inequitable agreement and lead us in action after November’s in-principle agreement was abandoned. You can learn more about the work of CPSU Delegates, or even consider becoming one yourself, at https://www.cpsu.com.au/delegates/
As we speak, the CPSU is also actively negotiating a new public sector wages agreement that covers Tasmania’s 25,000+ public sector workers. We’re pushing for real wage increases to deliver relief to our cost of living crisis, as well as modernising our agreement with new rights that recognise the operational role Parks workers play in managing our natural and cultural heritage.
