Bulletin 10 - vote on the new Jacana Energy enterprise agreement - issued 8 October 2021
As reported in Bulletin 9 I made an improved offer to the Community Public Sector Union (CPSU) and Bargaining Representatives (BR) on 24 September 2021 for the new 2021 – 2025 Jacana Energy Enterprise agreement.
I have considered feedback provided by the CPSU and BRs on my further improved offer and it is now time to give you – the employees – the opportunity to have your say.
The new offer delivers significant improvements such as no reduction to current or future terms and conditions, enhanced job certainty, improved leave entitlements and greater flexibility for work life balance. A key improvement is 3 extra days leave for Christmas Closedown and, if you’re rostered to work the closedown dates, you can use any of those 3 days before 24 December next year.
Ballot Process – Your vote is confidential
The ballot process will be conducted by the Northern Territory Electoral Commission (NTEC).
On Tuesday 12 October 2021, you will be sent information regarding the proposed 2021 - 2025 Jacana Energy Enterprise agreement, including a link to the proposed agreement and an explanatory document highlighting the changes compared with your current agreement. Hard copies of these documents will also be available throughout your workplace.
The ballot process will be conducted online. An email including a unique identifier will be sent to you at your Jacana Energy email address on 21 October 2021, along with steps on how to cast and submit your confidential electronic vote. You will need your AGS number to complete the ballot process.
The online ballot will be emailed to you using the email account details contained in myHR. If you won’t have access to your Jacana Energy email during the ballot period or would prefer the electronic ballot to be sent to your private email account, contact Rosanna Leitch by emailing netvote.NTEC@nt.gov.au or calling 08 8999 7641 at the NT Electoral Commission and provide your updated details as soon as possible (you will need to provide your AGS number for NTEC to identify you).
If you are accessing your emails through NTG webmail, the NTG system will not allow you to access the secure voting website. Employees will need to provide an alternative email address.
The timetable for the ballot is:
|Tuesday – 12 October||Distribution and access to the proposed agreement and explanatory material|
|Thursday – 21 October||Ballot opens (8am) - NTEC email with voting instructions and unique voting token number issued|
|Friday – 29 October||Ballot closes (10am) - results declared|
