Bulletin 20 - reminder to vote - 13 December 2021
The ballot for the proposed 2021 – 2025 Jacana Energy Enterprise Agreement closes at 10am on Tuesday 14 December 2021.
If you haven’t already voted then I encourage you to take part in this 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.
Make your vote count
If majority of employees who vote, vote yes, and the agreement is approved by the Fair Work Commission, the significant improvements to terms and conditions of employment for employees will be implemented.
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.
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.
