ESTA BARGAINING UPDATE
Yesterday the Unions met with ESTA to continue bargaining for the new Operational Staff Agreement.
This meeting was held following a stall in meetings for some weeks due to ESTA failing to be in a position to discuss the Union log of claims or present their own despite bargaining commencing in December.
Yesterday ESTA gave a high level presentation of their intended log however their actual log of claims is still yet to receive government approval meaning discussions are remaining at a high level only
ESTA’s presentation clearly indicated however that ESTA will be seeking significant changes to roster patterns and an ability to utilise significantly more part-time and casual staff diminishing job security for members.
At the Union’s request ESTA has now agreed to meet once a week for bargaining meetings in order to ensure discussion progress faster.
Once the Unions receive ESTA’s formally endorsed log we will provide more information to members.
