15 months, thousands of conversations, thousands of signatures and thousands of votes later… we did it.
Even after five years of no agreement negotiations and within the middle of a pandemic against this billion dollar multinational institution, we did it. CBA tried to use the pandemic to push a new low in pay rise.
CBA chose to end negotiations with us and instead ran a deceitful campaign. Despite that, over 7700 of us voted NO to their agreement.
They tried to cut sick leave. We stopped them.
They tried to offer 1.5%, 2% or 0% pay rises based on what you earn. We stopped them.
We pushed for 3% across the board and we got that and more (3.25%)
When the new agreement becomes live on the 27th of August, be proud of the work you have all done in making CBA a better and fairer place to work. We achieved these things because we all stood together.
Our work to make CBA fairer doesn’t end here.
