Pillar Enterprise agreement approved
The Fair Work Commission approved your Enterprise Agreement on 11 October 2016. The Agreement will operate from 18 October 2016 and its nominal expiry date is 17 October 2019.
This Agreement protects your entitlements during that period and gives you a 2.5 percent pay rise this year, a two percent pay rise next year and a 1.5 percent pay rise in the third year.
This is a significant win for members. At the outset, your unions was told both by management and the Treasury you would not get an Agreement that went for longer than 12 months; that the Government would not permit it. It was believed that Pillar would be less popular as a sale item in the Government’s privatisation marketplace. But, with your backing, your union persevered.
You voted in favour of Protected Industrial Action and we took the fight to the Government, who backed down in the face of our Collective Action. Well done to all members who stood united and determined. This is YOUR WIN.
If your colleagues are not in the union, it is worth reminding them that the more members we have, the better we are able to protect the hard won conditions that have been achieved. We ask you to ask your colleagues to join the PSA.
