Annual and Long Service Leave as a KPI at CBA

It has been brought to the union’s attention that CBA intend to make “reduction in own annual and long service leave balance” a KPI for staff.

Under your EBA, the bank can direct an employee to take annual leave (not LSL), but only in very strict circumstances. This clause will also apply to most people on contracts as well.

Making this a KPI would mean that in effect, an employee’s performance would be linked with their reduction in leave.

We are unsure how broadly they plan to apply this, and we congratulate members who brought their concerns to the union.

Their bravery in standing up for themselves and their colleagues at CBA will mean that we are in a position to act collectively and let CBA know that FSU members won’t accept the linking of performance to their ability to reduce leave liability on CBA.

Your annual leave and long service leave are yours, you’ve earned them, and to link taking that leave to your performance at the bank is not appropriate or fair.

Your union intends to take this issue up with the Bank, but we are stronger when we act together. If this KPI has appeared in your dashboard, or in that of someone else at CBA who thinks it’s unfair, then we need you to get in touch.

You can reply to this email or call our member rights centre to let us know if you’re affected and if you want to add your name to our collective dispute with CBA on this matter.

Please feel free to distribute this email to non-members and colleagues who may be affected by this.

In Unity,
