Ahead of Telstra’s annual remuneration review, and in recognition of the anniversary of the last annual wage rise under the current EBA, Telstra is proposing to pay interim wage rises to employees whilst negotiations for a new Agreement continues.

Telstra have proposed to increase Workstream wages by 1.5% and provide a guaranteed pay pool of 1.5% for Job Family from 1 October.

In addition, it is proposed to pay an additional 0.5% as an overall flat increase to all Band 2 to 4 employees once an Agreement comes in to force.

Whilst pay increases payable under the new Agreement have not yet been discussed or agreed to and are subject to ongoing negotiations, the Union supports this interim arrangement to ensure members don’t fall behind whilst complex talks continue, particularly around the structures and how a new Agreement would apply across the proposed new subsidiaries.

In the meantime, should you require any further information, please contact your Branch Officials Cade Anderson or Peter O’Connell on (02) 9893 7822.
