Bulletin 12 - Ballot outcome - Issued 1 November 2021

Ballot Outcome

I wish to advise the proposed “2021 – 2025 Power and Water Enterprise Agreement” was not approved by a majority of employees who voted in the ballot process.

The results of the ballot conducted by the NT Electoral Commission was as follows:

 Number of Votes
YES 78
NO 498

Next steps

I believe conducting a ballot for the new Agreement was the right approach in all circumstances, it allowed employees to have their say on job certainty and improvements to terms and conditions of employment for employees.

I will now consider my available options and will inform you of the outcome shortly, but remind employees that bargaining is subject to the NTPS Wages Policy and the constraints of the current budget parameters.

Thanks to everyone involved

Thank you to all employees who participated in the ballot.  It is important that employees take part in the enterprise agreement process and your involvement is appreciated.
