The first meeting of this coming round of enterprise bargaining negotiations will be held on 12 May.
As explained in the last E-bulletin, the CWU is automatically your bargaining representative unless you choose otherwise. Members of the other two major unions in Telstra, the CPSU and Professionals Australia will also be represented by their organisations.
The CWU has informed Telstra that it will be represented by two senior national officials, the Divisional President, Len Cooper and the Divisional Assistant Secretary (Telecommunications) Ken Hardisty.
This core team will be supported through the Divisional Office and may be supplemented during negotiations as necessary – for the creation of working parties, for instance.
Members will be able to keep up to date with the progress of the negotiations through the E-bulletin and through the national website at www.cwu.org.au.
Remember too that if you have not done so already, it is not too late to put items on the bargaining agenda through the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NL6WTTG, by contacting your state branch or by writing directly to the National Office at email@example.com.
