Your Union is happy to advise that the overwhelming majority of eligible employees at Ausgrid voted to accept Ausgrid’s EA offer, with 84% of you voting in favour of it.

This is a terrific outcome after 13 months of a hard negotiation.  Your first pay increase of 2.5% will be paid once the FWC has certified the Agreement, which may or may not occur prior to Christmas as December is traditionally the busiest month of the year for them.

It is intended that Ausgrid will lodge the Agreement and all relevant paperwork with the FWC by this Thursday, 25 November.  The timetable for next steps is as follows:

Date / Time Event Action Owner
By COB today Unions to be provided with EA Signature page and copy of F17 + Attachments Ausgrid
By COB Wednesday,
24 November
EA Signature page to be returned to Ausgrid Unions
Thursday, 25 November Lodgement of F16/17 + Attachments with FWC
(One signature page, consolidating all Unions signatures)
By COB Thursday, 25 November Lodgement of F18 Unions
