Voting Information - State Government Entities Certified Agreement 2019

Posted on March 23, 2020

From tomorrow you can vote on your EB Agreement.

This is the ballot for all employees covered by the Agreement. Union members have fought hard for the improvements contained in this Agreement and the union membership voted 98% in favour of the settlement offer in December. That is why we are here now – thanks to you and your efforts in not giving up.

The wages process will be locked into the agreement as a legally binding process but, given the current health pandemic, how that occurs is uncertain. We should be conscious of the changed environment and the possibility that Commissions may take longer to run these processes. We will keep members up to date throughout.

If you have any questions about the content of the Agreement, please do not hesitate to email or call us on 1800 177 244. 

The information below has been sent out by Government about the ballot. It includes contact information for the company running the ballot in case you don’t get your information tomorrow.
