Union members at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) will take strike action to defend working conditions, rights and pay which are currently threatened by management’s support for Federal Government’s policy that aims to strip workplace rights and conditions.
CSIRO Staff Association members across the country will stop work between 9 – 11 am (local times) on Thursday 19 November in protest against management’s refusal to protect workplace conditions and rights.
In a recent series of workplace meetings across the country, Staff Association members flatly rejected management’s proposed agreement which seeks to strip important rights and working conditions.
In response, the Staff Association Council met and endorsed a national two hour strike (9am-11am local time) on Thursday 19 November – unless CSIRO Executive and Human Resources (HR) immediately change their unworkable approach to bargaining.
In a series of workplace meetings around the country, Staff Association members have flatly rejected management’s proposed agreement and called for an escalation of the campaign to defend working conditions and rights at CSIRO.
