Despite the overwhelming rejection by Telstra workers of the EBA offer that includes an insulting pay offer and threats to your hard fought for and won redundancy entitlements,Telstra are refusing to budge in negotiations. Therefore your Union's national executive has voted to seek approval from the Fair Work Commission to hold a ballot for Protected Action under the Fair Work Act. This application is currently being reviewed by the FWC.
We will report to members as soon as the application is finalised.
50%+1 of Union members will have to return a vote for the ballot to be successful and a simple majority will then be needed to approve a range of actions and work bans.Please contact us directly if any of your contact details need to be updated and encourage any of your workmates who are not members to join the Union.
