Dispute over access to overtime at Xmas 2015 resolved

A dispute over access to overtime for full time and part time employees in the lead up to Christmas 2015 at the Melbourne Parcel Facility (MPF) was the subject of a conference at the Fair Work Commission last week and has been resolved.

RO cancellations commenced earlier than management at MPF had initially proposed.  Employees got fairer access to overtime and extended hours. 

However, to address the concerns of the CWU about adequate and genuine consultation concerning casuals Christmas arrangements Post and the union will commence consultation on this matter for 2016 in late September 2016. 

In addition, the union and Post will have further discussions concerning who does extra work that becomes available at the Melbourne Parcel Facility consistent with the Post Enterprise Agreement that: 

  • Permanent employees are to have access to fair and reasonable overtime and extended hours, and
  • Casuals are a last resort. 

If this issue is not resolved at MPF then it will be escalated in accordance with the disputes procedure.
