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

Negotiations for the new 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 here.

Your responses will be collated and presented to the bargaining table for negotiation. Any confidential responses will only be viewed by USU Officials and Delegates 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 Transgrid.

The USU will keep you informed regularly on the progress of the negotiations and will be regularly conducting report back meetings in lunchbreaks via Zoom or Teams. We will notify of any upcoming meetings to attend.

You will have also received a notice from Transgrid 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 Organisers who will be at the bargaining table with you as well as the resources from your union.

The USU will notify the Transgrid 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.

If you have any questions you can contact your Organisers Troy Dunne at 0419 403 076 and/or Melissa Pond at 620 741 as both would be happy to talk to you about this.

Please remember that Unity is Strength so if you are not a member and wish to join you can join here.
