Bulletin 14 - Ballot outcome - issued 12 November 2021

I wish to advise the proposed Northern Territory Public Sector 2021 – 2025 Enterprise Agreement was not approved by a majority of employees who voted in the ballot process.

The results of the ballot conducted by the NT Electoral Commission was as follows:

  Number of Votes
YES 1552
NO 4442
TOTAL 5994

Next steps

I believe conducting a ballot for the new Agreement was the right approach in all circumstances, it allowed employees to have their say on job certainty and proposed improvements to terms and conditions of employment for employees.

I will now consider the next steps and remind employees that bargaining is subject to the NTPS Wages Policy and the constraints of the current budget parameters.

Thanks to everyone involved

Thank you to all employees who participated in the ballot. It is important that employees take part in the enterprise agreement process and your involvement is appreciated.
