The ballot on Executive’s proposed Enterprise Agreement (EA) is now open and it’s time for all CSIRO staff to vote on the offer.
The Staff Association urges all CSIRO staff to participate in the process. Members should consider the information the Staff Association has provided on management’s proposal.
If adopted, Executive’s proposal would remove 20 per cent of enforceable rights and working conditions from the current EA; including those relating to job security, consultation and representation.
On this basis, the Staff Association recommends that all CSIRO staff Vote No.
If the majority of staff Vote No, the Staff Association will continue to collectively campaign for a fairer deal which preserves workplace rights and conditions at CSIRO.
The ballot runs from Friday 16 June until Thursday 22 June 2017.
For background information, comparison documents and summary material, please visit the Staff Association Enterprise Bargaining campaign page.
On Friday 16 June, CSIRO staff will receive an email from the Australian Election Company to vote on the agreement offer. The email includes voting instructions and a unique Personal Identification Number (PIN) which is needed to complete the ballot.
Be sure to check your inbox, spam or junk mail folders for the email.
Contact the The Australian Election Company for technical assistance in accessing the ballot or consult the relevant FAQ on the MyCSIRO intranet page.
If you have any further questions about voting, please email the Staff Association at email@example.com for more information.
