The CPSU NSW reported to members on Monday 2 December that the Conciliation Conference before the Fair Work Commission held last Friday 29 November 2019 was unable to provide a satisfactory resolution to the restructure dispute. This Bulletin can be read HERE.
Late Monday afternoon the CPSU NSW received an offer from TAFE NSW in attempt to resolve the dispute. Unfortunately, this offer did not address any of the concerns raised by the CPSU on behalf of its members, particularly the lack of consultation, the impact on members who are not being made redundant, the timing of the redundancies and the lack of detail or incorrect detail being given to affected staff. Therefore, the CSPU NSW filed an application with the FWC on Tuesday 3 December 2019 seeking an urgent hearing.
This matter has been listed for hearing for 9.00am Thursday 5 December 2019 before Deputy President Catanzariti.
Our advice to members continues to be to not respond to any offers of Voluntary Redundancy until after week’s hearings in the Commission, which will hopefully at the minimum provide new and more appropriate timeframes for consultation to occur. The CPSU NSW will provide members of the outcome of these proceedings later this week so that no member’s rights are adversely impacted by not immediately responding..
