Yesterday was our second meeting to negotiate our new Enterprise Agreement with ME Bank management.
We wanted to get in touch with you as soon as possible to give you an update.
In this negotiation, we want two things:
1. A fair pay increase; and
2. Job security in the BoQ sale.
(You can review our log of claims here
While things are looking good for our job security claims, ME has rejected our pay claim.
We are seeking one 3% pay increase for FY21 backdated to 1 July 2020, and one 3% pay increase for FY22.
ME is offering one pay increase of 3%, only backdated to 1 January 2021.
Already our colleagues are talking about why we deserve a pay increase – you can read about that here
We are bargaining again on Wednesday next week. We want to go to that meeting with your story about why we all deserve a fair pay increase.
What you need to do today is click this link and tell us why we deserve a fair pay increase.
‘This is how we stand together for a fair pay increase at ME.’
If you have any other questions or thoughts about the bargaining process, reply to this email.
