Following extensive consultation over the last two weeks, the message from the majority of Bankwest colleagues is clear. A pay cut is a deal breaker.
Today your FSU bargaining team wrote to Bankwest with your responses to their insulting offer. We also presented a fair alternative.
Management must ensure these negotiations are not prolonged any longer – by respecting the work we all do, and agreeing to our proposal for fair annual pay rises.
Time to act – Urgent Meeting
Join our urgent EA meeting this Tuesday 12 April at 7pm (AWST). We’ll discuss what we can do to keep Management accountable, and ensure fair pay for the next three years.
If you can’t attend the meeting, reply to this email and one of our team will be in touch.
Our proposal to end the impasse
Our proposed pay package for eligible colleagues includes:
- 3.25% in 2021 (backdated),
- 3.60% in 2022, and
- 3.25% in 2023.
This accounts for increases in cost of living pressures, and reflects the increased profitability and cost savings the Bank has achieved through already agreed matters in negotiations.
Be sure to share this update with your colleagues to keep them up to date.
Your FSU Team
