Callide Bargaining Update

Our Union along with the other relevant industry unions (‘the SBU’) met with CS Energy to continue bargaining for the new Callide Power Station Enterprise Agreement on 29 November and 30 November 2023.

There are over 170 claims for the bargaining parties to get through and unfortunately limited progress was made during the meetings.

If you would like more information around our claims, please read the combined SBU and CS Energy Log of Claims using the following link.

CS Energy again indicated that it could not consider a number of claims due to restrictions imposed on it by the State Government through the GOC (Government Owned Corporation) Wages Policy, which was disappointing.

Over the past year, our Union has renegotiated a number of Enterprise Agreements for other GOCs where the bargaining parties have agreed to claims that were well outside the GOC Wages Policy. In most instances, this has been off the back of our members in these workplaces taking protected industrial action.

If you want to achieve meaningful improvements to your existing conditions, ensure appropriate protections are in place to support the Queensland Energy and Jobs Plan and not fall behind the other GOCs, then we need you, as one of our members at Callide, to be prepared for the possibility of industrial action.

If you would like more information around protected industrial action, please read our factsheet using the following link.

If you know someone who is not currently a member of a union, share this email with them and encourage them to join our Union by clicking the following link, so they too can be part of bringing about meaningful change at Callide.

The Services Union is by your side during these negotiations.
