At 8am (AEST) on Monday 12 December voting opens for your new BOQ Enterprise Agreement. This is your opportunity to vote NO to management’s proposal of cuts to real wages and cuts to terms and conditions.
The results of the ballot will be available after the ballot closes at midday 12pm (AEST) Friday 16 December. We will communicate with members as soon as practicable once we are informed of the result.
If a majority of BOQ employees vote NO to management’s proposal, we will write to BOQ seeking to convene an urgent meeting to continue bargaining.
Only by staying united and all voting NO will we be in the strongest possible position to secure a better offer.

Speak to your colleagues – every vote counts
It’s important that as many people as possible vote to reject management’s proposal. This new agreement covers the majority of the workforce of the BOQ Group (including packaged employees and all roles up to but excluding ‘heads of’) so it’s essential that everyone knows what is at stake and votes NO.
