Our NAB EA claim –
hours of work & overtime

As negotiations for our new Enterprise Agreement approach, hours of work and overtime are key issues for NAB employees.

Members who completed the FSU bargaining survey made this clear:


Being able to complete work within ordinary hours is fundamental to a healthy work/life balance. Securing enhanced protections in these negotiations is a core issue for FSU members.

The first step in negotiations is to table the FSU members’ Log of Claims – a document spelling out what FSU members at NAB need to see for this to be an industry-leading agreement.

Read and endorse our bargaining claims


Our Log of Claims was compiled from member feedback in the survey. Once it’s endorsed by a majority vote of FSU members, the bargaining for our new and improved EA can commence.

Our claims include:

  • Enhanced overtime provisions and processes to improve access for all employees;
  • Safeguards and definition of “Additional reasonable hours” for Group 3 and above colleagues; and
  • Improvements to leave, such as removal of 10-day annual leave block, and limitations on shutdown/blackout periods.

Please share this update with your colleagues and encourage them to get involved. We are stronger when we stand together as workers to secure a fair agreement.
