Bendigo & Adelaide Bank – EBA Update

The Bank has revised its offer – but is it enough?!

FSU Negotiators met with Bendigo & Adelaide Bank this week to further current Enterprise Bargaining Agreement discussion.

The FSU provided staff feedback to the Bank with a very clear picture that the 2% x 3 years pay offer was not going to fly with staff.

The Bank responded with an offer of 2.5% for 2019, 2020 and 2021. Is this enough?

The Bank also contends there are circumstances where staff are not working their full 76 hours a fortnight, and propose adding the following to Clause 5.2 of the Enterprise Agreement as a way of making up time:

  • Other mutually agreed arrangements may be put in place to ensure that you work your 76 ordinary hours in that two week cycle for example attendance at community events

It is critical that the bargaining representatives receive your feedback on what you think about the proposed clause change and the latest pay offer: is 2.5% enough for each year of the EBA?

Please provide your feedback to the Finance Sector Union, VicTas Branch at before COB Friday 25th October 2019. Your details and feedback will remain strictly confidential.
