Negotiations at Endeavour Energy have been long and arduous. With no agreement in sight the combined unions and the company sought the assistance of the Fair Work Commission for assistance in reaching an agreement on contentious issues.
Commissioner Cribb has been facilitating the negotiations and on behalf of all parties has released this joint statement regarding the progress of negotiations.
In putting out this statement she acknowledges the great persistence and hard work shown by all of the bargaining representatives and congratulates all involved on their approach to the negotiations and the way they have managed to reach an agreement in principle on most of the issues.
The union will now be seeking endorsement of the agreement from our members. We urge you to read this statement thoroughly. In early 2018 we will be holding a series of mass meetings to give our members the opportunity to ask questions about the proposed agreement and to vote on endorsement.
