The Fair Work Commission has listed the application to make a Post modern enterprise award for March this year.
The CWU National Office is seeking to have a modern enterprise award for Post rather than have Postal workers covered by several modern industry awards. The various modern awards that would apply are overall, in our view, less beneficial compared to the proposed Post modern enterprise award. For example the proposed Post modern enterprise award preserves the 36.75 hours of work per week whereas modern industry awards have 38 hours per week.
We still have some issues we are negotiating with Post over the content of the modern enterprise award. Some rewording and deletions by Post raises concerns. We are awaiting a response from Post on these issues. If members have any questions or comments on the Post modern enterprise award you should contact the CWU National Office on P 03 9349 2100, F 03 9642 0333, E firstname.lastname@example.org
