Telstra: new Travel Allowance rates

In response to membership concerns, the CWU has for some time been pressing Telstra to review its Employee Travel Cost Allowance (ECTA) rates. 

Telstra has now advised the CWU that it has undertaken such a review and has set new rates for the current financial year. 

The new rates will be effective as of 1 March and will be available on the Telstra intranet. 

Members should be aware that not all Telstra employees are necessarily eligible for this payment. It is not paid to Job Family employees or to employees who use a corporate credit card to pay for work-related travel. 

Most Workstream employees will, however, be eligible for payments if they are required to undertake work-related travel that involves staying away from home overnight. 

Any members who are in doubt about their eligibility and/or whether they are being paid correctly should contact their state branch.
