The second meeting in the current negotiations for a new Enterprise Agreement (EA) in Lend Lease was held on Monday 10 October.
The agreement is designed to cover Lend Lease employees doing communications work. While the company only employs around 100 people in such work at present, it is set to expand its full time workforce after winning contracts related to the HFC component of the NBN roll-out.
Negotiations are at an early stage and the most recent meeting was spent hearing from employee representatives about issues they wanted dealt with during bargaining.
The CWU is currently consulting with its Lend Lease members and preparing a log of claims based on feedback from the membership meetings.
Any member who has not yet had input into these discussions should contact their CWU state branch now.
