After Many months of consultation with Decipha Management and Union Representatives an agreement was finally reached. The new Agreement is for three years.
Across the life of the Agreement staff with receive a 3% pay increase every October. Once approved by FWC they will also receive a back pay from first full pay on or after 22 October 2015.
Current Agreement which expired October 2015 had staff working from 4am to 6am received a 15% shift penalty with new Agreement that shift penalty will apply from 4am to 8am which has doubled from previous Agreement.
Voting has occurred and there was a 99% return yes vote which is an outstanding response.
