AER Enterprise Bargaining

3 May 2013

The current Enterprise Agreements expire at the end of the year for members in Aurizon and ARG.

For this reason, we need to start the process of getting our log of claims together for the various agreements.

Before we commence negotiations for specific Agreements, itís critical we give you an opportunity to have your say on whatís important so we can put together a log of claims.

There are two ways you can provide feedback:

You can complete the survey online. Youíll find it at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/VKLY2T8; or
You can complete the attached survey and return it via fax/post or email.

It only takes a few minutes to complete but will provide important information at these early stages. All of your information is kept confidential and held securely.

In the near future, you will also get the opportunity to attend a meeting to talk about the next Agreements. This will be a further important chance to have your say.

We can expect that the negotiations will be tough. Aurizon have restructured their business and made no secret of the fact there is more to come.

Many members have seen a lot of change over the last few years and are concerned that important rights and conditions may be under threat.

We canít allow key items which were won previously to be removed. Job security measures are as important as ever and we will fight to keep them.

No doubt you have suggestions and they are not just welcome, theyíre crucial to a good outcome.

Please take the time to complete this survey either online (click on the link at the end) or by downloading the PDF on the right.

Unity is Strength
