City of Greater Geelong EA vote result

Thursday, 12 July 2018

We issued a statement in response to an inquiry from the Geelong Advertiser regarding the results of the City’s EA vote

Executive Manager People and Organisational Development Andrew Keen

City employees have voted strongly in favour of the City’s new Enterprise Agreement. Of those who voted, 91 per cent voted ‘yes’ in favour of the new agreement.
Overall, 1317 employees took part in the vote. This is more than 50 per cent of our workforce, which is a good outcome.
The next step is sending the EA to the Fair Work Commission for its approval.
The Fair Work Commision is tasked with ensuring the EA offers a ‘better off overall’ agreement for all our employees, including our Maternal and Child Health Nurses, when compared with modern awards.
