ETU Assistant Secretary, Paul Sinclair and Unions NSW Deputy Assistant Secretary, Adam Kerslake will be visiting Transgrid depots and locations between 9 December - 13 December to meet with TransGrid staff over the company’s proposed non-union agreement.

All staff (union & non union) are encouraged to attend these information sessions.
It is important that members understand that the proposed non-union agreement requires many trade off’s in your conditions.
Under the company’s proposal you will lose multiple conditions for up to 0.4% pay increase. TransGrid also expect you to absorb future superannuation increases (1.25% over life of the agreement) as part of this deal - hardly good by any standard.
Voting will commence next Monday 16 December and ALL EMPLOYEES SHOULD VOTE NO TO THE PROPOSED AGREEMENT.
By voting NO you will force management back to the negotiating table.
If you have any questions please ask your workplace delegate of call Paul Sinclair on 0414 877 169.
