Voting for the ASU’s Menzies Aviation (Sydney and Melbourne) Customer Service Enterprise Agreement 2014 closed on 2nd April 2015 and we are pleased to advise that it was overwhelmingly endorsed by customer service staff in Sydney and Melbourne with 98.8% of staff who voted in the ballot voting to approve the agreement.
This is an outstanding result and a credit to the Sydney and Melbourne ASU delegates who worked tirelessly to get the best agreement possible. Thanks go to ASU delegates Doris Nykanen and Steph Keady from Sydney and Brett Whitehead from Melbourne.
Menzies and the ASU are currently finalising all the documentation that needs to be lodged with the Fair Work Commission so the agreement can be approved. Once the Fair Work Commission approves the agreement it then commences.
When do I get my pay rise?
The first pay increase of 3% is payable from the first full pay period on or after 1 July 2014 – so this means there will be significant back pay payable. There is also another pay rise of 3.5% due from the first pay period on or after 1April 2015.
This means there will be significant back pay and pay rises as soon as the agreement is approved by Fair Work Commission. All allowances also increase in line with the payrises so back pay for all the allowances will be due to you too.
We will let you know as soon as the agreement is approved and we have been advised by the company when back pay will be made.
Make sure you are familiar with what the new rates that are payable under our agreement are.
