Telstra EA: bargaining bulletin #1 - 12.05.2015
The CWU and other Telstra unions (the CPSU and Professionals Australia) met with Telstra today, 12 May, for the opening of enterprise bargaining negotiations.
This was really a preliminary meeting concerned largely with technical matters such as the scheduling of meetings over the bargaining period and the general conduct of discussions.
Neither Telstra nor the unions presented a full “log” of claims at the meeting. However we did present a high level overview of the key issues we wanted discussed, as did Telstra.

Telstra EA: bargaining to begin 12 May - 08.05.2015
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
