Toll workers win breakthrough

Following months of negotiations and agreed workplace consultations, TWU national workplace representatives and Toll reached an agreement, and Toll workers voted overwhelmingly in favour of the agreement – 92% said YES.
Meetings were held at yards around the country seeking endorsement of the proposal, and it now heads to the Fair Work Commission for approval.
The agreement preserves existing protections on working hours, penalty rates and dispute resolution clauses.  It will enhance superannuation payments to 14.75% over 3 years and boost pay by 7% to 2019. It will also include job security protections, casual permanent conversion and better utilisation of the existing workforce.
“Toll employees want an efficient, well-run company that is successful and can provide quality jobs. This agreement will set the ground work for this by ensuring an efficient and well-trained staff,” said TWU National Secretary Tony Sheldon.
“Our member-led negotiating team pressed the case strenuously for an agreement that would provide protections and benefits for the company and staff into the future. After months of tough negotiations a breakthrough has come,” Sheldon added.
