We are in the news! The Australian Financial Review has run an article about Link Group CEO Vivek Bhatia receiving a massive pay rise (which was 76% once you include bonuses!) while proposing a pay cut those of us covered by the SuperPartners agreement.
We continue to call for a 6% increase in year one to keep up with rising inflation and the cost of living. They are stuck on their offer of 3.5% for the first year and have refused to put this to a ballot for us to vote on.
Their offer – which is less than half of the current inflation rate of 7.8%, falls short of what we need to combat the rising cost of living.
Our union is taking Link Group to the Fair Work Commission to claim that they are breaching good faith bargaining rules and goes to conciliation on Monday 27 March 2023.
