Please assist ETU review of Transgrid EBA ballot

Peter Moss - Friday, September 17, 2021

The ETU asks all Transgrid members to assist in the ETU review of the ballot result announced on Friday 17 September.

 

Given the extremely close outcome, workers and their unions need to be assured that the correct processes were followed at every stage of this vote.

 

 

In particular, the ETU seeks to confirm that every eligible worker was able to vote, and that every vote was independently cast.

 

I am interested to hear first-hand from our members about your experiences throughout the process, including before and during the actual voting.

 

This could include any communications in any form from any manager. It could include any technical issue that may have restricted your ability to vote. It could include any lack of access to information or equipment that may have affected your ability to vote.

 

If you have any concerns along these lines, please email me ASAP allen@etuaustralia.org.au

 

If any anomalies are identified, I will write to Transgridasking the company to annul the ballot announced today.

 

I will update ETU members as information comes to hand.

ETU members vote 92% YES for new Protected Industrial Action

 

ETU members at Ausgrid have delivered an overwhelming YES vote of at least 92 per cent to all questions in their second Protected Action Ballot.

 

The results of the second Ausgrid PAB in three months were released this morning by the Australian Election Company.

 

Around 60 per cent of eligible workers voted in the Ballot which strongly approved seven new forms of legally Protected Industrial Action.

 

The list includes: An unlimited number of indefinite or periodic bans on Field Staff Switching for planned or programmed work (except to “Make Safe” in a Fault and/or Emergency situation).

 

Powerful statement of strength & unity

 

I thank and congratulate all ETU members who participated in this Ballot.

 

Your overwhelming YES vote is a powerful statement that Ausgrid workers remain strong and united after 10 weeks of industrial action.

 

Thanks also to our great team of ETU delegates who have steered this EBA campaign through weekly meetings over several months. Your contribution has been enormous.

 

Management under huge pressure

 

The PAB result should make Ausgrid management reconsider the aggressive anti-worker approach that we have seen throughout this dispute.

 

CEO Gross and his team have not substantially improved the EBA offer tabled in February 2021 – a wage freeze, continuing indefinite job cuts, and forced shift work.

 

Make no mistake, Ausgrid management is under huge pressure from our campaign for a fair EBA.

 

We’ve seen Gross and another senior manager announce their departure from the company.

 

Ausgrid’s operations are severely restricted by your Protected Industrial Action, which has protected safety at all times.

 

Super funds named & shamed

 

The ETU has ramped up a media, political and community campaign that has named and shamed the industry super funds that majority-own Ausgrid.

 

The CEOs of those super funds have been deluged by more than 20,000 emails supporting our fair EBA campaign.

 

On 20 September, the Ausgrid board will meet with the ETU and combined unions, the ACTU, and Directors of the industry funds.

 

Ausgrid’s refusal to make an acceptable offer, and the company’s continued delaying tactics, are on the agenda for that meeting. The company’s position is viewed as unsustainable by all parties.

 

Endeavour Energy industry standard

 

In recent weeks we saw genuine negotiations at Endeavour Energy deliver a fair outcome for all parties.

 

ETU members at that company will enjoy pay rises totalling 7.95 per cent with improved conditions including the Electrical License Allowance. Employer super contributions will climb to a guaranteed 16.5 per cent.

 

Compare this negotiated outcome to the bitter pill that Ausgrid wants you to swallow – the proposed wage freeze would mean a serious reduction to real wages in a year where official inflation sits at 3.8 per cent.

 

Families would be hit hard by the forced shift work Ausgrid plans to impose. And Ausgrid employees would be denied the legislated super increases every other Australian worker will get.

 

Stay strong, stay united

 

Together we will defeat this attempt to cut your wages, conditions and job security.

 

Stay strong, stay united and stay the course. 

 

Please read on for critical information about ETU member stoppages on Wednesday 15 September, and the Combined Unions EBA Webinar 9-10 am on the same day.

 

Proud to be union

Secretary, ETU NSW & ACT
