Bulletin 23 - Agreement lodged for approval - issued 12 January 2022

As advised in Bulletin 22 (issued 17 December 2021), the Northern Territory Public Sector 2021 – 2025 Enterprise Agreement (the Agreement) was endorsed by a majority of employees who voted in the ballot which concluded on 17 December 2021.

An application for formal approval of the Agreement from the Fair Work Commission (FWC) was lodged on 31 December 2021. It is unknown how long the FWC approval process will take.

The Agreement will not come into effect until 7 days after we receive the formal approval from the FWC.

I have issued Determination Number 4 of 2021 to enable employees to receive the benefit of 3 days paid Christmas Closedown leave for 29 to 31 December 2021 and payment of the $4000 lump sum on pay day of 20 January 2022 (which is earlier than provided under the Agreement). All other improvements will be effective 7 days after the FWC approval.
