Union members at Westpac have voted overwhelmingly in favour of ratifying the new Collective Agreement, which delivers a wage increase of 3.4% (effective from 1 April this year) and a further 3.4% on 1 April next year.
63% of eligible Westpac members participated in the ballot at ratification meetings, with over 90% voting in favour of the settlement.
We are heading towards bargaining with Westpac in March, and members’ claims meetings will run from 3 February to 7 March. The meeting schedule is being emailed to all members this afternoon, so please check your inbox to find out when your site’s meeting will be held. Westpac workers can check with their local organiser for more information. (This schedule can also be found on our website located under Westpac.)
