Union Moves Closer To Finalising Agreement at Carpentaria Shire Council

Local Authorities May 13, 2021

As members at Carpentaria Shire Council will be aware, there have been large delays getting your Certified Agreement (CA) over the line. The main reason for the delay revolves around whether Council pays below or above the Award for certain outside staff roles.

Most of our log of claims have been addressed and members have made it clear that they want this CA to be finalised. Our Union is by your side and we will continue to do everything we can to get this CA finalised.

It has been agreed by Council that they will take another look at the alleged “under Award” wages of specific employees and they will get back to Unions. But Council made it clear that, if we cannot get agreement from all parties soon, they will seek assistance from the Commission.

Our Union also made it clear to Council that they need to come to the table with a revised wage offer that reflects the lack of wage increase prior to these negotiations.

Remind any non-member colleagues what strong membership has delivered so far, and that joining will ensure we achieve a CA that you and your colleagues deserve. Members know that The Services Union is by your side every step of the way when it comes to CA negotiations. Joining is easy at
