Last week Veolia issued the ASU a take it or leave it offer. Senior Management have stated that the pay grades currently on offer are based on members accepting a CPI pay increase and Veolia’s proposed EBA in it's entirety.
Whilst the pay deal has improved for many of us there are still a number of outstanding issues such as overtime payments, long service leave, public holidays and personal leave that for many members are important.
They have also stated that they are not prepared to allow for arbitration by the Fair Work Commission in any dispute. What that means is that FWC can only recommend a resolution. Veolia could choose to ignore it completely.
Veolia say it is a good deal. But is it? We have asked for the numbers to be crunched and sent to us so we can make an informed decision.
