3 years of real pay cuts is BOQ’s “final” offer

Last week we met with BOQ Group management to continue negotiating your new BOQ Group Enterprise Agreement. But instead of negotiating, management came to us with their ‘final offer’ on pay.

It’s still a real pay cut

BOQ have made two small changes to their offer – proposing a 4% increase for employees earning between $90k and $120k in Year 1, and to backdate this year’s pay increases to 1 September – even though we’ve been bargaining for months!

Even worse, BOQ Group are trying to buy your support by offering employees a $1000 one-off cash payment to those earning under $90k.

Under $90k $90 – $120k Over $120k
Year 1 4% (+ $1000 cash bonus) 4% (was 3%)  

No guaranteed pay rise.

Year 2 3.5% 2.75%
Year 3 3% 2.5%

Bizarrely, BOQ representatives couldn’t even provide a clear justification as to how this addresses the increasing cost of living pressures as the offer still remains below inflation.
