Bulletin 19 - Ballot is open - issued 8 December 2021

Ballot is open

The ballot for the proposed Northern Territory Public Sector 2021 – 2025 Enterprise Agreement has now opened.

It is important that you have your say by voting on the proposed agreement.

Your vote needs to be received prior to the ballot closing at 10.00am on Friday 17 December 2021.

All employees are eligible to vote. You do not have to be a union member to participate in the ballot.

How to Vote

You should have received an email from the Northern Territory Electoral Commission (NTEC) with instructions on how to vote electronically using the NTEC ‘Netvote’ system.

If you haven’t received an email, or need assistance with how to vote, please contact the NT Electoral Commission on netvote.NTEC@nt.gov.au or by calling 8999 7641.

Northern Territory Electoral Commission

The Northern Territory Electoral Commission is an independent authority who manages the ballot process and counting votes.

The NTEC ballot process ensures that all employee personal details remain confidential, and that voting preferences cannot be identified.

I will advise employees of the ballot result via a bulletin and a notice on the enterprise bargaining website for the General NTPS Enterprise Agreement Negotiations.

Make Your Vote Count

Every vote is important and can make a difference and I encourage you to take part in the ballot by casting your vote.

New offer

If the majority of employees who vote, vote YES and the Fair Work Commission approves the agreement, the current agreement will be replaced.  Employees will receive the 3 days Christmas Closedown provisions this year, and the first $4,000 lump sum (gross) to be paid in January 2022.

I am offering $10,000 in lump sum payments over four years.  To see what it’s worth read Bulletin 18.

More information

Links to the proposed agreement, explanatory notes and relevant documents referenced in the proposed agreement are available in Bulletin 17. There should also be hard copies available in your workplace.

For further information on the proposed agreement, the explanatory notes or the ballot process, please contact OCPE on email enquiries.ocpe@nt.gov.au or phone 8999 4282.

Regular updates in relation to the bargaining process are available on the OCPE Webpage at the following link Enterprise agreement negotiations - General NTPS.
