Gympie Regional Council Bargaining – The End is Near!
Members of The Services Union at Gympie Regional Council can take pride in the fact that bargaining for the new Certified Agreement (CA) is heading in the right direction. Since the last round of members’ meetings in November, our union has gathered feedback from members. When we and the other Unions return to the bargaining table tomorrow, that feedback will form the basis for working through the outstanding CA matters, the bulk of which are simply technical or drafting issues. Once these issues have been resolved, we will put the resulting draft agreement to an online vote for union member endorsement in advance of an all-staff ballot.
All up, the CA campaign at Gympie Council has been one of the more productive and positive bargaining experiences across the State. Every member of The Services Union at Gympie Regional Council can take credit for this state of affairs by contributing to a strong, informed membership base. If you work with someone who is not yet a member, remind them of this and encourage them to join – increasing our strength on the ground is the best way to ensure we finalise and implement the new CA promptly.
