Your TWU and TNT delegates have started planning for the next national bargaining agreement with planning meetings held across Queensland.
After a challenging but successful 2010 agreement, that included the first ever national agreement that secured fair rates, conditions, standards and safety for TNT workers, this week’s meetings have set the wheels in motion.
TWU Assistant Branch Secretary Scott Connolly said the next step will be to distribute the members’ survey.
‘The members’ survey is an important tool that identifies what members want in their agreement and what they want for the next four years,’ Scott said.
‘We achieved a lot in the last agreement and we will again be working toward maintaining and enhancing conditions, safety, and securing job security in the next agreement.’
The member’s survey has been developed and will be made available to all TNT TWU members shortly.
‘I encourage all TNT TWU members to fill out the survey and make their voices heard,’ Scott said.
‘If you are not a member, join today and have your say.’
‘Once the surveys are distributed, completed and returned, your elected national delegate-led negotiating team will know exactly what it is that is important to you when they sit down with management.’
‘To get a strong EBA that ensures safe conditions, access to training and fair pay rises we need to stand together,’ Scott said.
‘A skilled and stable workforce needs a strong union – so lets stand together and the set the rates, standards and working conditions you want in your yard, and for all TNT TWU members across Australia.’
TNT is a wealthy company operating in over 200 countries with a global turn over of more than $10 billion every year. Don’t be mistaken.
