Australia:Amcor Fibre Packaging National Enterprise Agreement Endorsed
Members across Australia employed in 12 sites of Amcor Fibre Packaging endorsed by a majority vote the 2007 National EBA.
This agreement covers over 900 members in all states.
The EBA negotiations were quite difficult and time consuming and resulted in many meetings between the union and the company. The length of time for the negotiations to be completed was very much attributable to complications as a result of Workchoices.
The final agreement provided for a wages increase of 12% over 3 years (4%, 4%, 4%) and an MOU which contains the prohibited content that the parties were required to remove from the EBA under Workchoices.
The 2007 Agreement was in effect a ‘rollover’ of the 2004 Agreement with the only changes necessary to make it compliant with the Act.
All of the current entitlements were protected, including the continuation of the agreement in the event of a transmission of business
The increases were back dated to the 30th September, 2007.
The Agreement again demonstrates the importance of maintaining a national approach to bargaining across Amcor Fibre Packaging and through this national approach and unity our wages and conditions are protected and maintained for the next 3 years.
