September 2022 update – We have facilitated a number of operational meetings for the next Enterprise Agreement, which were supported by further subcommittee advisory meetings.

During this month’s meetings, we addressed the some of the “rub points” contained in the EA and drafted preliminary changes. Further work is scheduled into the future to address the most recent and subsequent surveys. We are also in dialogue with key ministers and parliamentarians. Our good working relationship with Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus has us cautiously optimistic that positive changes will occur for the benefit of our members. Alex has met with Mr Dreyfus three times so far, and will have another meeting with him this week.

We also advise that the next EA survey will be going out to members relatively soon (we are still on track to meet all original timeframes for our planning and advisory stage). This second survey will again comprise a secure webform on our site.
