PN Intermodal EA – the latest
The PN Intermodal negotiating team met with the company last week to discuss whether any movement could be made on the outstanding matters in the enterprise agreement – wages and changes to the Drivers Only clause.
Some progress with the company agreeing to take the Driver Only changes off the table, but continued to offer a wage outcome of 4% per year, with an additional one off cash bonus. They also proposed to increase the term of the agreement to 4 years.
Your Negotiating Team felt that given the in principle offsets already agreed to & the recently announced Asciano increase in profit this was not enough movement from the company.
Your negotiating committee made a counter proposal which removed the one of cash bonus and replaced it with an annual cash payment.
It is planned to hold a national delegates hook up this Monday 18th at 2pm to discuss progress and any feedback.
We will update the Membership of any further developments.
