Last week we asked ETU Delegates to circulate the Essential Energy revised in-principle offer and seeking feedback from members. The overwhelming response has been ETU members support the concept of an early settlement, “rollover” of the Enterprise Agreement.
Essential Energy will issue employees with a notice of representational rights. This formally starts the bargaining process. The parties and representatives will meet to formalise a draft agreement to go to an electronic vote. This vote cannot take place within 21 days of the notice of representational rights being issued. A draft agreement and explanatory document needs to be circulated 7 days before any vote can be held.
The aim is to have a vote conducted early December.
Thank you to all the ETU Delegates for your continued efforts and enabling this to happen in such a short timeframe. Your efforts are much appreciated.
