CWU members and other employees at Lend Lease have voted in favour of a new Enterprise Agreement after nearly 6 months of bargaining.
The new agreement will cover workers who have previously been working on award-based conditions but without an Enterprise Agreement as well as a smaller group who have been working under an EA that reached its nominal expiry date in 2011.
The new agreement will protect wage levels of all current workers, deliver a 3% per annum pay rise over three years (back paid to 1 December 2016) and provide improvements in core conditions.
New provisions include:
The agreement received the support of 80% of those who voted on it and is currently before the Fair Work Commission awaiting certification.
