BERRY STREET HAS AGREED TO MEET

NOVEMBER 2018 BARGAINING UPDATE

Dear members

Back in September we wrote to you, frustrated and disappointed that Berry Street had again delayed bargaining your new enterprise agreement. Since then, we haven’t given up and we have news! 

BARGAINING WILL NOW COMMENCE IN DECEMBER 2018

Bargaining to negotiate your new terms and conditions will officially commence in December 2018.

Organisers have been meeting with members across the state to understand what you want us to bargain for, with more meetings planned in the coming weeks.

Members, we need you to tell us, what do you want us to bargain for?

Log of claims

We have now finished reviewing the entire agreement; we have some concerns and we want more for our members.

Following the first round of afterhours meetings with members, we have prepared an initial log of claims. Please read through the log and let us know what you think!

Remember, the stronger your union, the better your deal! When union members come together, we can negotiate a better outcome. So get out there, and encourage your colleagues to join your union.
