ACMA bargaining recommences

Negotiations for a new Enterprise Agreement (EA) in the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) are due to recommence.

As reported over a number of E-bulletins, these negotiations have progressed slowly since they began in August last year.

The chief obstacle has been the federal government policy of demanding “productivity offsets” i.e. reduction of working conditions in return for pay rises – even ones that are below inflation.

This policy is being applied to Commonwealth employees across the board. So far it has been rejected by everyone except the armed forces personnel who have no say in the matter.

It is hard to see how much progress can be made in the ACMA negotiations until there is some movement by the government in this area.  CWU members will nevertheless be advised of any developments.
