Optus has notified the CWU that it will commence bargaining with its employees and their representatives for a new Employee Partnership Agreement (EPA).
CWU members should note that, under current law, the union automatically becomes their bargaining representative in negotiations for a new agreement.
There is no need for members to take any action themselves.
It is proposed that the first meeting takes place next week i.e. week beginning 3 August. Branches will be
consulting with members to ensure all current issues of concern to them are represented at this and following meetings.
Members wanting input into these discussions should contact their state branch promptly.
