Bulletin 19 - Ballot outcome - Issued 14 December 2021

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 191
NO 403
TOTAL 594

Next steps

Conducting a second ballot for the new Agreement with the improved lump sum payments allowed employees to have their say on job certainty and the proposed 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.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a safe, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year.
