We will report on the ongoing work around implementing the new collective agreement.

This includes making sure new staff get an email offering them Sea-Unite membership. This is happening now and we get a steady number of new members each week that way. We are also making the company use the government “employee choice form” properly for new staff which also results in new members each week.

The “mandatory choice” process after 30 days agreed to in bargaining is also under discussion. When that happens it will assist the union to grow automatically rather than force us to do it all by individual recruitment. 

New delegates needed

The stop-work meeting will also be a place where we can recruit new delegates to be trained to represent and support your fellow workers. There are new departments where we have members and need delegates to keep an eye on things.

All new delegates will be put through a one-day paid delegate training programme to help them do this job.
