After months of negotiations, BOQ Group have refused to compromise and continue to propose below inflation pay rises and cuts to terms and conditions.
This comes as their yearly profits are up 15%, the CEO’s pay went up by 14% and the average BOQ Senior Executives pay increased by just over 8% between 2021 and 2022. How is this fair?
Earlier this month, we proposed a revised offer to BOQ Group in the hope that we could get a better outcome for all of us. This was presented to management as a package, meaning it would need to be accepted in its entirety for an agreement to be reached.
Disappointingly, after considering our revised offer for more than a week, BOQ rejected it and instead responded with their own counter offer – cherry picking from our revised package and providing only minor changes to their previous dodgy offer.
We need all BOQ Group workers to attend one of our urgent Zoom meetings next Tuesday for an Enterprise Bargaining update and to hear why everyone should reject this dodgy offer and commit to voting NO if BOQ keep refusing to budge and put this out to a vote.
We need you to help us reach more people. Please share this email with your colleagues and encourage them to come to the Zoom meeting.
