Bulletin 5 - Negotiations update - issued 11 June 2021

Negotiations are continuing and we remain focused on job certainty and additional benefits for employees, including improved leave entitlements and better flexible work options.

Improved performance development framework and new salary structure

As advised in bulletin 2 Jacana Energy are proposing to redesign the current Performance Development (PDP) Framework to simplify the process and criteria for employees to progress to the next pay point.

In addition to the redesigned PDP Framework that will be provided to the union and circulated to employees shortly, a new salary structure will be introduced to remove 'mid-point' increments to enable more opportunities for incremental advancement. The new salary structure is proposed to be implemented on I July 2022.

I have listened to the matters raised about the proposed redesigned PDP Framework and new salary structure and I am pleased to advise that I have made further improvements by enabling employees that have received a 'Met' rating on their PDP on 30 June 2022, and who are eligible to progress to only half a pay point, to receive 50% of the top of band bonus as a one off payment. Refer to the table below for payment figures.

Classification 50% of the top of band bonus
JL1 $857
JL2 $1,125
JL3 $1,375
JL4 $1,625

I believe this is a generous transition process that ensures equity for all employees, I have provided examples below to clarify this generous improvement.

Transitional examples:

Employee 1:

  • received a 'Met' rating on their PDP on 30 June 2022;
  • is at the JL3.4 pay point 4 in the current structure;
  • will transition to pay point 3 in the new structure; and
  • progress half a pay point.

Employee 2:

  • received a 'Met' rating on their PDP on 30 June 2022;
  • is at the JL3.5 pay point 5 in the current structure;
  • will transition to pay point 4 in the new structure; and
  • progress a full pay point.

Salary Classifications

I hope to provide employees with a final proposal for consideration in the coining weeks. My representatives and I are working to provide enhanced conditions and pay the first $1,000 lump sum as soon as possible.
