NAB confirms they will return to bargaining

Thursday, 14 November

This week NAB CEO Ross McEwan attempted to push the message that it’s an all-or-nothing offer by claiming the Bank had “…no plans to return to bargaining” if we vote No.

Don’t buy into his false ultimatum. NAB cannot ignore a No vote outcome at the ballot.  

Late yesterday afternoon NAB wrote to the FSU and confirmed that “… if there is a no vote and the FSU request to meet with NAB, we will do so in accordance with our Good Faith Bargaining obligations.

Following a successful No vote we will immediately write to NAB on your behalf to ensure we are back at the bargaining table in December to secure a real wage increase and no loss of conditions.

Speak to your colleagues

Now is the time to speak to your colleagues about why NAB’s proposal will leave us all worse off.

To assist we have created leaflets and posters you can print out, share with your colleagues, and put up in the workplace – check them out here.

It’s vital that everyone knows what is at risk and why this ballot is so important.

Only by actually voting No in the confidential ballot can we improve this offer.

The outcome is determined by the majority of staff who cast a vote. If our colleagues don’t like what management are offering, then they need to vote.

Forward this update on to everyone you work with and if you’re not already a member, join today.
