NBN Co agreement update

The CWU met again with NBN Co on Tuesday 31 March to attempt to progress Enterprise Agreement negotiations.

As reported in earlier E-bulletins, negotiations between NBN Co and all relevant unions have been bogged down since late last year when NBN Co indicated that it was bound by the Abbott government’s policies for public sector bargaining.

These include compulsory trade-offs for any wage rises and a ban on back pay. As the current NBN Co and Technical Employees Agreement reached its nominal expiry date on 1 August last year, this policy is now costing employees a significant amount of money – as it is of course designed to do.

The CWU has requested that NBN Co now formalise its current offer so that members have a concrete proposal to consider. To date, however, there has been no indication that they or other NBN Co employees are likely to find any government-imposed trade-offs of conditions acceptable.
