Brisbane City Council – Looks like EBA 2020 is set to land
The Services Union will always put in the hard yards to achieve a decent agreement, regardless of how long it takes. That’s why we’re happy to announce that we walked away from today’s Brisbane City Council EBA discussions with a proposal we believe members will want to consider.
Essentially the proposal is for the following:
- Two-year Agreement October 2020 – October 2022;
- Wage increases of 2% in October 2021 and in April 2022;
- All current EBA terms including job security retained;
- Improvements to parental leave.
The proposal is along the lines that members have been discussing with us in the various consultations we have held over the last few months.
The Services Union will facilitate a series of virtual and face-to-face meetings over the coming weeks and organise a ballot so that members can have the opportunity to discuss and endorse the offer.
Certainly, The Services Union will be recommending it as an Agreement which will give you both job security and strong wages growth during what are very uncertain times. Members will have the final say on whether the proposal is a workable one.
