1) BAN ON DUTIES REQUIRED TO BE UNDERTAKEN BY EMPLOYEES DURING UNPAID TIME

Members are advised that this ban has been WITHDRAWN due to Telstra’s threat on docking pay for refusing to log on in unpaid hours.  As a result of this escalation of the dispute by Telstra Management, a 24 HOUR STOPPAGE of ALL members has been notified for TUESDAY 12 MARCH 2019 , making a 4 day weekend. Further information to come.
 

2) BAN ON PERFORMANCE OF ESSENTIAL CUSTOMER SERVICING WORK

Members are directed NOT to accept recalls under “essential customer servicing” “ the three levels of restriction”.  This means, if you are listed on a recall roster or “on call”, or “emergent call” or “immediate call” you are directed NOT to attend to any duties associated with these arrangements:

  • Do not attend to recall  
  • Do not respond to recall requests
  • Do not attend remotely to any duties (including telephone advice, or accessing Telstra’s systems or emails from home)

 

Note: this action does not apply where there is a threat to life or the safety of customers “. as life and limb exemptions”.  Contact the Branch Office if there is a management request to do so.

 

3) BAN ON PERFORMANCE OF EMERGENCY WORK

Members are directed NOT to accept recalls under “emergency work” provisions.  This means, if you receive a recall for emergency work, (that is – you were not on an essential customer servicing arrangement and you were not notified prior to ceasing work), you are directed NOT to attend to that work – including any remote activities such as telephone advice.

 

Note: this action does not apply where there is a threat to life or the safety of customers “. as life and limb exemptions”.  Contact the Branch Office if there is a management request to do so.
