Your response to the bank’s new EA offer

FSU members have consistently called for a fair pay increase that meets cost of living pressures. Throughout the EA negotiations we’ve been clear – an offer below CPI is a pay cut in real terms.

After hundreds of FSU members spoke out to Jason and Matt about why we need fair pay, the bank has finally shown they can listen.

Management’s revised pay offer includes a 3.25% pay increase for each year of the EA. However – this offer is still less than the cost of living. When the budget was handed down this week, the cost of living was forecast to reach 4.25% in the next few months.

What you have achieved so far

Through your engagement at each stage of the negotiations, you’ve kept the pressure on Management. This ensured their harmonisation agenda did not erode long-standing conditions, and you secured improvements including:

  • Improvements to and protections for redundancy provisions
  • Increases to Personal/Carer’s Leave
  • Improvements to paid parental leave and removal of the cap where both parents work for Bankwest
  • Improvements to Domestic Violence Leave
  • Maintaining RDO provisions
  • Maintaining redeployment provisions
