Just say No to WaterCorp
The only way to get a better offer is to stand together and vote NO against the Corporation’s EA offer.
LESS THAN CPI, NO CPI PROTECTION, AND BIG TRADE-OFFS.
Water Corporation attempting to is reduce your wages and conditions. The current offer is barely enough to keep up with CPI and basic costs-of-living, plus they want you to trade-off on:
- Real CPI Protection
- your right to Union representation
- Specified Callings entitlements
- recognition of Level 8 positions
- overtime entitlements
They also want to move several of your rights and entitlements into Corporation Policy which will mean your Union cannot protect you on these matters. It’s lose-lose.
WATERCORP’s offer for first 15 months is 3%
Which ACTUALLY equates to 2.4% for the first 12 months, then .6% in the following 3 months.
PERTH CPI has increased from 2.9% (Dec 2013) to 3.1% (Mar 2013), widening the gap even further between their offer and your ability to keep up with the cost-of-living.
