Goondiwindi Regional Council Members Vote Yes!
Members of The Services Union at Goondiwindi Regional Council overwhelmingly voted ‘YES’ in the recent Certified Agreement (CA) ballot. Well done to all who voted! Our Union will work closely with Council towards prompt lodgement of the proposed CA with the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission.
Congratulations to all members of our Union for making this great new CA happen. Remember to thank your Workplace Delegates for working hard to protect your conditions and delivering increases of 7.5% or $75 per week (whichever is the greater) over the life of this agreement. This is equal to or better than comparable Councils.
A key feature of the new CA is a revived Joint Consultative Committee (JCC) through which our Union will oversee implementation of the agreement and resolve emerging workplace issues. Workplace Delegates will be key to the JCC’s success. If there is no delegate in your work area and you’re interested in maintaining and improving conditions, contact your Regional Organiser Craig Dunn on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once again, union membership and Workplace Delegate leadership have delivered a great bargaining outcome. Not a member? Now’s the time to get on board and contribute. Joining is easy at www.theservicesunion.com.au.
