Negotiations about to begin for a new Enterprise Agreement at BOQ!

Monday, 2 July 2018

Thanks to all the members who participated in the recent survey about what you would like to see in your next Agreement at BOQ.

The results of the survey form the basis of the Claim that FSU will present on behalf of members when negotiations begin next Thursday, 5 July.

The areas of most concern to the majority of members who responded are;

  • Pay
  • staffing and relief
  • targets and sales pressure
  • workplace culture and workplace flexibility

Members want to see a pay increase that rewards them for the work they do and is comparable to pay rates in similar organisations.  They want a remuneration structure that is dependent upon quality customer experience not the volume of sales.

A key concern is the lack of adequate relief to cover absences and the impact this is having not only on being able to achieve targets but on the health and well-being of employees.

A lack of transparency and consultation around performance objectives along with targets not being achievable during normal working hours is also a major concern.

Some of the issues around workplace culture are linked to staffing issues with others identifying management practice as negatively impacting the workplace.
