What is going on? The agreement enters into force on November 30, 2016. ASU members met earlier this week to hear an update on negotiations on the business deal at Virgin Australia. We launched a survey after the meeting and we need all members of the Virgin team to tell us how to respond to management requests. Fair Work Commission publishes enterprise agreements on this website. If you have sought and cannot reach an agreement: after the union members voted in favour of the proposed enterprise agreement, we have now reached an agreement in principle with Virgin on the final version of the enterprise agreement. This means that the formal authorisation process is ongoing. Management will write to you today with the official notification. The information and instruments are available on the Commission`s website to support an agreement. Visit an agreement for more details. Negotiations for a new HQ Enterprise Agreement are underway. Our goal will be to achieve a better offer, at the heart of our aviation requirements: we want workers to be paid the same for the same work and we want a secure job with enough hours and a salary that goes home, so that people can support themselves and their families. The education of a child is a serious undertaking and workers deserve safety in the difficult early stages. Under this agreement, first caregivers will receive 12 weeks of leave and an additional 2 weeks of salary to be paid to the Superannuation, unless they choose to take them as wages.
For workers who take the additional two weeks as leave, this is 14 weeks of parental leave in addition to the state plan. This makes this EBA one of the most family-friendly. The agreement gives a 5% bonus on the current salary, with a bonus of $3,000 for full-time employees and $2,500 for part-time workers. There is an increase of 4.5% by July 2018 and 3% from July 2019. Enterprise agreements are collective agreements between employers and workers on employment conditions. The Fair Labour Commission can provide information on the process of drafting enterprise agreements, evaluate and approve agreements. We can also deal with disputes over the terms of the agreements.

An agreement should be overall better for an employee when compared to the corresponding bonuses or rewards.
There are rewards for EBA members for delivering the airline a record profit. The agreement states: “Our members worked tirelessly when things were difficult for the airline and were the key to record profit. We are delighted that Qantas, one of the largest private sector employers in the country, is ready to reach agreement on innovative and progressive outcomes for our members. This EBA shows why it is worth being a member of the union – without our joint efforts, we would not have been able to achieve these important advances at Qantas. We were all shocked by Jetstar`s decision to outsource the work of jetstar agents working on the ramps in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Cairns, Adelaide and Avalon. Approximately 350 employees will lose their jobs as a result of this decision, which came without warning.
