Bulletin 9 - Improved offer - issued 24 September 2021
After carefully considering the feedback provided on my improved offer made on 19 August 2021, I am pleased to advise that today (24 September 2021) I made improvements to that offer.
I am offering further significant improvements to terms and conditions of service for employees in a genuine attempt to settle negotiations and finalise bargaining.
The table below is a summary of key improvements. You can also read the full details of the improved offer.
Summary of the improvements
|Improved condition Employee rights and entitlements|
|Improved condition Allowances|
|New paid leave entitlement|
Further improvements to leave provisions
Excess Travel Time
Flexible Work arrangements
Other changes to my improved offer
My improved offer also provides a range of other improvements to conditions such as dispute settlement procedures, lump sum payment provisions (for casuals and employees on leave without pay) and safe and healthy work environments, as set out in the attached information sheet.
As a number of the improvements above have cost implications it was necessary to review my initial offer to identify some offsets. My initial offer is amended as follows:
- Modify paid health screening leave to provide 1 hour (not 2) per year (noting this amendment is still double the existing entitlement which is 1 hour every 2 years for cancer screening); and
- Withdrawal of the transition to retirement proposal (2 hours/year). Employees may still utilise flextime, TOIL or other leave for this purpose.
I have asked the parties to provide me with feedback on the improved offer by 1 October 2021.
