It’s time to have your say about what you would like to see in the New Enterprise Agreement.

Negotiations for the NRMA Enterprise Agreement will be commencing shortly and the USU needs to know what matters to you and what you would like us to bring to the negotiating table.

You can do this by completing the survey online at or you can complete the survey attached and email to to pass onto your USU Organiser Melissa Pond.

Your responses will be collated and presented to the Bargaining Table for negotiation. Any confidential responses will only be viewed by USU Officials and Delegate and not tabled to management.

Your input is important for us to get a better understanding of what matters to you so we can achieve the best possible outcome for USU members at the NRMA.

The USU will keep you informed regularly on the progress of the negotiations and if you wish to meet with us, please contact us through the contact details below and we will be happy to meet and provide any updates and answer any questions that may arise.

Please remember that Unity is Strength so if you are not a member and wish to join you can do so online at

You will have also received a notice from the NRMA about Representational Rights. Please remember that you do not need to indicate that you wish for the USU to Bargain on your behalf as we are already parties to the current EA and automatically are Bargaining Representatives for you. However you may wish to nominate a co-worker or yourself.

If you wish to become a USU Bargaining Representative you can do so by filling in the Bargaining Questions at the end of the survey. You will have the support of your Organiser who will be at the bargaining table with you as well as the resources from your union. The USU will notify the NRMA that you are a USU Representative and will arrange all the necessary time you need with management to be able to represent your co-workers in the negotiations.

Becoming a Bargaining Representative can be a rewarding experience and give you an insight to how the NRMA operates that you may not have experienced before.

If you have any questions you can contact your Organiser Melissa Pond at or mobile 0408 620 741 who will be happy to talk to you about this.
