Below you will find an article from the Sydney Morning Herald that outlines the REAL TRANSGRID FACTS.
TransGrid executive members received massive wage increases in 2013. The ETU is not asking for anything more or anything less than equal treatment for the workforce when it comes to wage determinations.
According to the SMH, TransGrid executives received between 14.5% and 27% increases to their wages plus superannuation in 2013.
When it comes to ETU members management expect you to be thankful and accept a wage increase of 2.85%, 2.9% and 2.9%. In TransGrids own update on Monday 9 December they admit in their first explanatory note that you will have to trade off hard fought conditions.
The ETU makes no apologies in standing up for our members in order to secure a FAIR WAGE INCREASE WITHOUT ANY TRADE OFF’s and the IMPROVEMENT OF SOME EXISTING CLAUSES to provide additional job security in a time of uncertainty.
