Yesterday, the Trade Union Bargaining Committee met with Ausgrid management. Ausgrid submitted its proposal for the new operating contract. As we expected, management wants mass layoffs, unlimited catches and a lower-than-inflation wage result. More than 88% of eligible workers voted yes to more than 73%. In South Australia, an incident was caused by injuries to an employee due to an EWP failure. An ankle on an EWP 18M GMJ failed while the employee was high. The employee suffered a broken leg and other injuries. Please note that due to the successful vote, the USU Ausgrid and the Fair Work Commission have announced that we will terminate our application for protected class action. This means that you will soon receive a payment of $1,600 and a salary increase of 2.75% – THE FIRST IN 4 YEARS.
Further amendments will not come into force until the agreement is formally registered by the Fair Labour Commission. If you have any questions, please contact your organizer Troy Dunne P: 0419 403 076 e: firstname.lastname@example.org or Paul Sansom on 0409 076 633 or email@example.com We will continue to negotiate with Ausgrid, but we are very far away. The company`s proposal in its current form is unacceptable to employees. Another EBA meeting will be held on Monday, October 9, and a fully paid delegates` meeting on Wednesday, October 11 to determine our next steps, which may well include union actions. We`ll keep you informed every step of the way. Much remains to be done to finalize career Capability Remuneration`s (CCR) proposal before the proposed introduction on 31 December 2018. The EWP was at working height (9m) when the upper ankle pencil detached, the bucket with the worker and the tools in the bucket fell back into its resting position (about 2.5 m). This bucket is 8 years old and has not undergone any major transformations.

Meet Tara Koot, ETU`s head of learning, and meet like-minded electric apprentices. In particular, and in addition to all other pre-start tests, members must physically check pivot pens and pin restraints on all similar EWes before each use. The ETU offers six general scholarships each year with a grant of $2,000. These scholarships are available to ETU members, their children and grandchildren. To qualify, you must be enrolled in a recognized course with a registered training organization at the diploma or higher level. We welcome the adoption of the trade union proposals by Ausgrid: come to pizza and beer on Thursday 14 June to discuss the topics that concern electric apprentices in the workplace. Ausgrid has yet to understand that negotiations are a bilateral process of giving and taking. Our members have given enough: Ausgrid`s proposal is a crude insult. Here are the five most important attacks on employees: later, we`ll ask for your views, suggestions and ideas on how to make the RAC work for USU members.
