Dfat Enterprise Bargaining Agreement

The Community and Public Sector Union sent a bulletin to its members of the department stating that its senior managers had “presented their revised final enterprise agreement and immediately indicated that they did not consider further negotiations possible.” The CPSU says the 3,700 FDFA employees should be concerned about the “rationalization” of the agreement, in line with GSP-wide proposals.

The FDFA is a precondition for the implementation of CAAS, which will begin in February 2021 and be completed in January 2023. The program also has the option of extending the contract for up to 2 years. The extension option is exercised at the sole discretion of the FDFA. The union argues that the protection of workers who have issued below-average issues is removed, as is the legal law applicable to some of the DFAT`s lucrative allowances.

“We have managed to maintain all current staff conditions and we propose to introduce more flexible working rules, such as. B half-wage annual leave in certain circumstances,” Williams wrote.
