This is a short note to invite you to a union meeting this Wednesday at 12:30pm.
We will discuss the EBA negotiations and next steps in pursuit of a fairer pay offer and other outstanding claims.
For those who missed some of our meetings at the end of last year: this document is a summary of our claims and where they’re up to.
Cbus have indicated that they’ll begin “briefings” on their positions this week. Whether these are genuine feedback gathering sessions or more of a “hard sell” remains to be seen, but regardless: no agreement can be put in place without the majority of us (the staff) voting in support of it.
We all hold the collective decision making power over this agreement.
It is important that you speak to your colleagues about our union’s push for further improvements in negotiations and that Cbus hear from us loud and clear in their briefing sessions about what we expect in our EBA.
The challenges Cbus faces are undeniable, but we are more than up to the task ahead. This is not the time to short change us.
See you at the meeting.
Your FSU team,
Bill Rue, Caroline Troup, Fiona Peck, Ian Wilson, Jennifer Glass
