Broadcast Australia: bargaining continues

Bargaining for a new Enterprise Agreement (EA) in Broadcast Australia continues with a two day face-to-face meeting being held in Sydney on Thursday 15 June.

The parties are making good progress on resolving most of the issues still under discussion (e.g. higher duties payments, payment of home away allowance) although some fine tuning of these clauses is still needed.

The real sticking point in negotiations, however, may be the pay increase. The CWU and other bargaining representatives have tabled a claim for a 4% or CPI +2% per annum rise over a three year agreement.

That claim has been flatly rejected by BA.

CWU feedback from employees suggests that they are looking for a rise that will provide a substantial real pay increase i.e. one that is significantly above CPI.  

Another meeting is scheduled for Thursday 22 June.
