The new AGL Macquarie Enterprise Agreement 2016 was approved by the Fair Work Commission (FWC) on 29 November 2016.
The enterprise agreement will operate from 1 January 2017. The FWC decision noted the particular arrangements agreed by the parties that the salary increases prescribed will apply from the first pay period following the acceptance of the agreement by the employees and will be paid following the formal approval of the agreement in the FWC. The full decision and agreement can be read HERE.
Members can expect to receive back payment in the coming weeks.
Our thanks go to PSA (CPSU) delegates who participated in the bargaining process ensuring that your views and wishes were heard. A number of improvements have been made to the agreement as a result.
Thank you Grantly Gray, Gus McNeill, Greg Cooper and Shane Delforce.
A summary of the changes and improvements made were listed in our previous bulletin which can be viewed HERE.
