Employees vote YES to Lend Lease agreement

CWU members and other employees at Lend Lease have voted in favour of a new Enterprise Agreement after nearly 6 months of bargaining. 

The new agreement will cover workers who have previously been working on award-based conditions but without an Enterprise Agreement as well as a smaller group who have been working under an EA that reached its nominal expiry date in 2011. 

The new agreement will protect wage levels of all current workers, deliver a 3% per annum pay rise over three years (back paid to 1 December 2016) and provide improvements in core conditions. 

New provisions include: 

  • 10% employer contribution to superannuation 
  • Increase in redundancy entitlements above the minimum National Employment Standards (NES)  
  • Increase in Travelling Allowance and On Call payments 
  • 17.5% leave loading (which the company had initially argued was already rolled into salaries). 

The agreement received the support of 80% of those who voted on it and is currently before the Fair Work Commission awaiting certification.
