What CC containers workers want

February 28, 2017

TWU Survey Results

The TWU has received a fantastic response to the EBA Survey conducted at CC containers.

Through the surveys you have told us that you want a strong and fair agreement at CC Containers to change your workplace through a good job, strong conditions and reform throughout the sector that meet Safe Rates Standards.

We want to secure the EBA for the future, not just any EBA or a rushed one! You’ve told us that you want a EBA that will take you into the future. A strong union voice on the job to ensure we have a say in our work, can address issues and build our union.

 

You have said you are seeking the following improvements to pay and conditions:

• Safe Rates and health and safety committees that allow for workers to consult and address issues.
• Induction processes and rights for all workers, including labour and outside hire.
• Paid yard meetings to discuss workplace, safety, industry and community matters; superannuation issues; and industry matters.
• Delegates’ rights, including paid release to educate other workers locally and nationally.
• Labour and outside hire companies to be included in the dispute procedure to address issues.
• Give workers a voice on the job through TWU inductions, meetings and union rights.

Safe and fair conditions for all workers doing CC Containers work and strengthening job security to ensure a skilled, stable workforce to stop the race to the bottom:
• Annual increases to pay and superannuation that bring you in line with industry standards.
• Protections and rights for casual and agency workers.
• Redundancy rights and consultation around workforce changes.
• Obligation on CC Containers to consult about technology changes.
• A right to a monthly RDO.

Stronger protections for work issues that shape our lives outside of the workplace:

• Mental health clauses and domestic violence leave to allow workers the opportunity to reach out and get help in times of need.
• Cultural leave to allow workers to take part in activities related to their heritage.

Where to from here:

From here, the TWU and your delegates will be seeking a meeting with management to ensure we begin negotiations for a better agreement. We will ensure we provide constant feedback to
members.

We are stronger together:

If you haven’t already become a Union member, join today and show your support for the people who are working to maintain and improve working conditions at CC Container.
