Dud deal rejected again
Federal Courts staff have once again emphatically rejected a deeply flawed enterprise agreement proposal, and will now launch further strike action in their fight for a fair deal.
The ballot resulted in a 69% No vote, with 83% of eligible staff participating from the Federal, Family and Federal Circuit Courts and the National Native Title Tribunal. They will all be covered by a single Federal Courts agreement because of a merger in the middle of last year.
It is the second emphatic rejection during this protracted round of bargaining, following a 90% No vote in June.
Federal Courts management have been advised that CPSU members will resume strikes and other industrial action in the wake of the ballot result from Monday next week, 27 November.
