IRA Agreement put to vote
Independent Rail Australia (IRA) employees will vote over the next week on an Enterprise Agreement which will see pay rises of 6% over three years and strengthened protection for union representation in the work place.
IRA employees had already received a 16% pay rise before negotiations started and the 6% rise plus an addition 2% going towards super payments is a good outcome for workers.
The EA will see conditions maintained for employees plus clauses strengthening workplace relations training policy, leave policies and the authority of delegates to perform their role in the workplace without discrimination.
Voting closes on the 20th of May and votes will be counted on Monday the 23rd.
