Back pay and pay increases on the way.

After 4 months of waiting the Fair Work Commission has finally approved your new EBA.

What next?

The Union will follow up with dnata to confirm the date that the 4% of pay increases will be applied as well as the backpay owed all the way back to July 2017.

It is our expectation that these payments be expedited and paid to you as soon as possible.

Once the dates are confirmed we will let you know when to expect the payments.

A good outcome!

It’s important to remember that the EBA is as good as it is because of union members and the union.

Without union members;

  • AHSA would be in place with a second rate EBA,
  • there would be no new EBA or pay increases for dnata employees.
  • you would have no job security.
