PN Bulk: Backpay at last
PN Bulk drivers have finally started to receive the backpay owed to them under their Enterprise Agreement from the 16/12/2010, which is the effective implementation date of the EA.
Backpay includes base remuneration plus 3% from July 2009; 5% from July 2010 and 1.9% due in January 2011, plus overtime.
The backpay is due to the length of time it took to finalise the EA.
Further to the above and following negotiations with the Company late last week to resolve a Dispute in relation to the effective implementation date and associated payments and conditions as contained in the EA, the Company has now agreed with our claim that there are additional provisions within the EA which should be back dated from the implementation date of the EA. The additional backpay is planned to be paid in early March.
