Because of our collective and sustained campaigning efforts, we have together achieved a breakthrough in pay negotiations.
Management have now agreed to a new pay offer totalling 10.1% for eligible employees including:
- 3.25% with effect from the first full pay period on or after 1 July 2021 (backpaid);
- 3.60% with effect from the first full pay period on or after 1 July 2022; and
- 3.25% with effect from the first full pay period on or after 1 July 2023
This significant improvement is down to everyone who spoke to their colleagues, gave their feedback to management and explained why we all deserve pay increases that keep up with the cost of living.
We have achieved a lot by sticking together, negotiating as a collective and standing up for our worth as Bankwest employees.
If you know someone who isn’t a member, there is no better time to ask them to join.
We will keep you updated on the progress of finalising the drafting of our new EA, the timing of the ballot on the agreement and when pay increases will be applicable following a majority of employees voting in favour of the proposal.
