IWLR EA: Here are your achievements!

Nov 12, 2021Uncategorized

We’ve been out and about to Pyrmont depot for the IWLR EA and outlining the major things members achieved by sticking to their guns. We’re expecting that the company will put this out to a vote, and we’ll update you as things progress. For now, it seems the forgotten depot is not forgotten anymore! The full list of major achievements include:

  • A 2-year bridging agreement with an expiry date of 31 October 2023 (same as the CSELR network which will bring with it more bargaining power)
  • Progression to the highest grade within 3 years instead of 5 years (all current employees to be bumped up one grade from whatever their grade was as of 1 November 2021)
  • Safety Critical workers to be paid more per hour than Non-Safety Critical workers across ALL grades
  • Mentor Allowance increased from 5% to 10%
  • Domestic Violence Clause (10 days paid)
  • Disciplinary Process Clause (A clear process around disciplinary matters)
  • Enhanced Consultation Clause (ability for members to be involved in decision making)
  • Enhanced Roster Clauses (to allow in assisting members more effectively)
  • Enhanced Dispute Settlement Procedure Clause (ability to dispute anything)
  • Place of Work Clause
  • Home Depot Clause
  • Indexation of all Allowances (except for mentor allowance which is attached to Rate of Pay)
  • Removal of Code of Conduct (removal of an employer generated policy which we had no say in)
  • Clause for a working party to be informed to consider and explore all available options for Free Travel on existing Transdev Services
  • Overtime for Part Timers has been protected
  • Income protection increased by 3% on 1 November 2021 and 3% on 1 November 2022
