EA 2023 – it’s going to be a big year at CBA!

As 2022 draws to a close we wanted to take the opportunity to wish all FSU Members at CBA a safe and happy New Year and to look forward to what next year brings.

Earlier this month your FSU Representatives met to talk about what is ahead for 2023 at CBA. We discussed the upcoming negotiations for a new CBA Enterprise Agreement and CBA’s continued offshoring of jobs.

Enterprise Agreement 2023 Survey – Have your say

CBA has confirmed that we will meet at the end of January 2023 to discuss the negotiations for our new Enterprise Agreement with a timetable for bargaining likely to be known after then.

Before the negotiations begin it is critical that your team understands your views – what is important to you, what you would like to see improved at CBA, and what changes you want to see in your next Enterprise Agreement.

Please take the time to provide your views in our EA Survey by clicking here. 

A paper-based copy of the survey is also available in A4 or a foldable A3.

This survey will be sent to all FSU members. Please distribute to your colleagues and ask them to also complete it. If they are not members of the FSU, speak to them about why you became a member and ask them to join.

The feedback provided will be collated and used to develop a draft log of claims – a summary of what will inform the negotiations, before further member consultation takes place.

CBA’s Offshoring Agenda

Since 2021, the CBA has sent the jobs of almost 500 skilled Australians offshore. Despite their massive profits and other banks bringing jobs back to Australia, they continue to build upon their operations in India. This presents a real risk to the job security of many CBA employees in Australia.

At our meeting in December, CBA Reps agreed that we should campaign against the CBA’s agenda, demand transparency from CBA, and job security. As an initial step, we have created an open letter to CEO Matt Comyn for CBA employees, customers and the community to sign.

Please sign and share this with your colleagues, friends and community.
