Bulletin 24 - vote on the proposed 2021-2025 Jacana Energy enterprise agreement - issued 18 May 2022

As reported in Bulletin 23 I have made further improvements to the proposed 2021 – 2025 Jacana Energy Enterprise Agreement. These were discussed with the CPSU, Delegates and bargaining representatives on 12 May 2022.

I have considered feedback provided by the CPSU, delegates and bargaining representatives and it is now time to give you – the employees – the opportunity to have your say.

The offer delivers significant improvements to the Performance Development Plan (PDP) Framework and the removal of the mid-point increments. This provides opportunities for greater incremental advancement.

Other significant improvements include 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 3 days leave within 12 months.


Ballot process – your vote is confidential

The ballot process will be conducted by the Northern Territory Electoral Commission (NTEC).

On 25 May 2022 you will be sent information regarding the proposed 2021 – 2025 Jacana Energy Enterprise Agreement, including a link to the proposed agreement, an explanatory document highlighting the changes compared with your current agreement and the Performance Development Plan (PDP) Framework. 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 NTPS email address on 2 June 2022, along with steps on how to cast and submit your confidential electronic vote. You will need your AGS number to complete the ballot process.
