ENTERPRISE AGREEMENT NEGOTIATIONS MUST NOT BE DELAYED

 

The Australian Federal Police Association is disappointed by delays imposed by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) on the recommencement of negotiations, after the first proposed enterprise agreement was voted down by a strong majority of AFP appointees.

The first discussion regarding negotiations occurred yesterday (Tuesday, 11 June), where the AFPA was originally optimistic that negotiations would recommence quickly.

AFPA President Alex Caruana said that during the meeting, the AFP informed bargainers that the AFP would not resume negotiations until the completion of a proposed staff survey.

“The AFPA was ready to recommence negotiations yesterday; we have done our homework, and it is obvious that the AFP had not. There is no reason that negotiations cannot run jointly with the AFP’s proposed survey. If the AFP Executive seriously does not know why the proposed enterprise agreement was voted down, then they are truly disengaged and disconnected from their workforce.

AFPA SUPPORTS NEW DEEPFAKE LEGISLATION

The Australian Federal Police Association (AFPA) supports the Criminal Code Amendment (Deepfake Sexual Material) Bill 2024, announced by Federal Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus KC.

AFPA President Alex Caruana said the new laws would focus on digitally created and altered explicit material shared via a carriage service without consent.

“With the rapid advancements in artificial intelligence and technology in general, legislation and laws often struggle to keep pace with the novel crime(s) that appear as a result.

“The Attorney-General is 100 per cent correct when he characterises the creation of this kind of material as ‘insidious and degrading’, with victims left feeling ‘humiliated and dehumanised’.

NO VOTE RETURNED BY AFP APPOINTEES

The Australian Federal Police Association (AFPA) welcomes the announcement that AFP appointees returned a resounding ‘NO’ vote of 64.49 per cent to the AFP’s (Australian Federal Police) Enterprise Agreement (EA) offer.

The AFPA has vigorously and consistently campaigned for a ‘no’ vote, focusing on the lack of respect and recognition shown by the AFP Executive and the Federal Government towards the AFP’s 6,000-member workforce, which strives every day to protect Australia and its communities. The AFPA’s campaign was supported overwhelmingly by a survey of its members conducted during the lead-up to the vote.

AFPA President Alex Caruana said that the result was a clear indication that the AFP workforce was unhappy with the current proposal and that the AFP and Government needed to step up and support their premier law enforcement agency.
