Bargaining process & employee representational rights

Notice of Employee Representational Rights

Australia Post is obligated, by law, to issue a Notice of Employee Representational Rights to every employee who is eligible to be covered by the proposed EBA10.

As a CEPU member, you can ignore this notice.

IMPORTANT: You are not required to appoint a bargaining representative. As a CEPU/CWU member, the Union is automatically your bargaining representative to negotiate on behalf of all members.

Your Log of Claims

Following our EBA10 member survey’s record return rate – we are confident that the Union’s log of claims will truly represent the issues most important to our members.

These claims will be shared with members shortly.

Bargaining and COVID-19

Your Union and Australia Post representatives at the highest levels are constantly engaging as we work to mitigate the effects the emerging Coronavirus pandemic on members and the business.

This includes potential impacts on the bargaining process.

We are exploring ways to mitigate against the possible effects on bargaining for a new Agreement whilst ensuring the health and safety of those participating in the process.

A range of measures are currently being considered.

Should there be any necessary changes to the proposed bargaining timetable, we will ensure members are advised as soon as possible.

Staying up to date

We will continue to keep members up to date through workplace circulars, e-mail bulletins and SMS messages. Members should ensure State Branch Office’s have their up to date e-mail and mobile telephone details on file. Members can also visit our dedicated EBA10 campaign website at www.eba10.com.au for the latest news and updates.

Should you require any further information, please contact your State Branch Office for assistance.
