Members at CFCU are celebrating a win this week with a 9% guaranteed wage increase over 3 years.
FSU members have been negotiating with management for a new Enterprise Agreement at CFCU over the last month. We made every effort pushing management to fair conditions and pay in our new EA – and it’s worked!
During the global pandemic, the credit union requested to defer these negotiations. As a result we went without a wage increase in 2020. We’re finally going ahead – but instead of a fair offer, the credit union initially proposed an annual wage increase of just 2.5%. In addition, their offer only backdated the increase for this year to 1 July 2021.
Members are clear: respect is the only acceptable offer
This offer was put to all members and employees for feedback. The response from members was clear – all CFCU workers deserve a pay increase that recognises our hard work through this year and every year.
We put that message to management: 2.5% just isn’t good enough.
The collective voice of FSU members and CFCU workers resulted in the CFCU revising their annual wage offer from 2.5% to 3%.
The revised offer, if accepted, will lock in a 9% guaranteed wage increase over 3 years.
Congratulations to all who made their voices heard!

The next bargaining meeting is scheduled for 17 November. This meeting will cover the review of CFCU’s classification structure and remuneration framework.
