Lend Lease workers to strike on Tuesday
CFMEU members working for Lend Lease around the country will strike for 48 hours beginning on Tuesday with further action likely, following a breakdown in negotiations for a new Enterprise Bargaining Agreement.
The main points of disagreement in the dispute relate to wages and other issues. They are:
The date of operation of increases
The implementation of the Employee Share Acquisition Plan
Security of employment clauses
Site allowances in the ACT, NSW and QLD
Use of electronic site access cards
Payment of crane crew rates
WA to be included in the Agreement.
“The CFMEU continues to negotiate with Lend Lease on the Agreement,” said Construction National Secretary Dave Noonan.
“However, our members are prepared for a long hard battle with Lend Lease to secure a decent national EBA. That ought to be understood by the industry and Lend Lease’s clients who want to see their buildings finished in a timely way.
“The company’s position on delaying increases and the other issues is not acceptable to our members. They are prepared to fight hard to ensure Lend Lease come up with a better deal,” Mr Noonan said.
