Queensland Urban Utilities SAS Negotiations – An Early Win!
The Services Union participated in further Enterprise Agreement (EA) discussions last Wednesday at the Queensland Urban Utilities (QUU) SAS Laboratory.
Our Union and QUU explained the details of the various items on our respective logs of claims, and some substantive discussions ensued.
We achieved an early win, with QUU agreeing that annual leave should be re-credited to employees who fall sick while on leave for an hour or part thereof.
This is a positive development and we hope future discussions will be as fruitful.
While we are yet to discuss wage increases, we have several options for payment of allowances currently on the table.
The Services Union will participate in the next EA negotiation on Wednesday 7 August at 1.30pm. Your organiser Lachlan Enshaw will be on site from 12.30pm to answer questions and to talk through all items scheduled for discussion. Bring your colleagues and remind them of the importance of strong union membership when it comes to EA negotiations. Joining is easy at www.theservicesunion.com.au.
