Make YOUR Vote Count

Power and Water Bulletin 14 contains information about the ballot process. The ballot opens on  7 December 2021, and I encourage you to have your say by casting a vote.

The electronic ballot will be emailed to you using the email account details contained in myHR. If you won’t have access to your Power and Water email during the ballot period or would prefer the electronic ballot to be sent to your private email account, please contact NTEC on netvote.NTEC@nt.gov.au or  8999 7641 and provide your updated details as soon as possible. (Please note you will need to provide your AGS number for NTEC to identify you).

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
