“We recognize that the agreement expired a few years ago, which is why we voluntarily provided our employees with a 2.5% increase in September last year.” The meeting may have been uncertain months ago, after the Council withdrew its proposal for an enterprise agreement last Friday in response to feedback from staff and unions. Today, more than 300 Council members have set up for fair pay and job security after their salaries were frozen for three years. Matt Burnett, the mayor of the Gladstone area, said the city council had withdrawn its latest offer and would reorganize it based on workers` reactions and concerns. He said the Council would address workers` concerns in the ongoing EBA negotiations. “It is now up to the Council to come to the table with a fairer agreement,” he said. The Council stated that it respected the role of trade unions as a voice for workers and would continue negotiations in good faith for an EBA. He said the bargaining team had also proposed wage increases of 2.5 per cent, 2.25 per cent and 2 per cent per year over the next three years. ” (The Commission) remains committed to working with our employees through the joint unions to understand what they are asking for in the certified agreement after having already revised the initial offer of the enterprise agreement based on staff feedback and concerns,” said Cr Burnett. McJannett said the union was asking the council to offer workers a “fair wage increase” after two years of pay break.

McJannett said that while other Queensland councils had planned three intermediate pay increases for workers, Gladstone Council has frozen wages over the past three years. “In many cases, we`re talking about Council employees who always do a little more, they come in early, work through their lunch breaks,” he said. McJannett said the EBA negotiations began in April, after being postponed last year, so that the Council could complete its restructuring.

Gladstone Area Mayor Matt Burnett told Observer in a statement that the council would continue to negotiate a new collective agreement in “good faith.” The trade union action was voted yesterday afternoon, at the second trade union meeting in front of the Goondoon St Civic Centre, on the ongoing negotiations on contract labour negotiations. It was not certain how long it would take, because the Council did not put forward an alternative after removing the widely rejected proposal from the table.
