Bulletin 20 - Reminder to vote - issued 14 December 2021

The Ballot for the NTPS General Agreement closes
10.00am Friday 17 December 2021

The ballot for the proposed Northern Territory Public Sector 2021 – 2025 Enterprise Agreement closes at 10.00 am on Friday 17 December 2021.

If you haven’t already voted I encourage you to take part in the ballot by casting your vote.

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

Vote yes

Make Your Vote Count

The proposed agreement provides for a range of significantly improved employment conditions, job certainty and addresses a number of priority issues raised by bargaining representatives.

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

If the majority of employees who vote, vote YES and the Fair Work Commission approve the agreement, it will replace the current agreement.  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.

New offer

If the vote isn’t supported the current agreement will continue to apply, the lump sum payments can’t be passed on nor the offered improvements to conditions.
