ACMA employees say NO to wage offer

Employees at the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) have voted down a proposed agreement which would have delivered a 6% pay rise over 3 years. 

ACMA employees haven’t had a pay rise since July 2013!  The effective pay freeze is a result of Coalition government policies which have tried to force Commonwealth employees to trade off conditions for meagre pay rises which will almost certainly be lower than inflation. 

CWU members have rejected that strategy, as have the great majority of other ACMA employees. Nearly 90% of the employees eligible to vote did vote and of the 396 valid votes cast, 302 (76.3%) voted NOT to accept the offer made. 

The ball is back in ACMA’s court. The CWU expects that there will be further meetings with ACMA.
