FedEx staff would be aware that the Federal Express National Enterprise Agreement 2010 expires on 4 August 2013. An amended draft agreement has been circulated by management prior to the commencement of formal bargaining with ASU and TWU representatives.
There has been one meeting held between bargaining representatives on Tuesday 21 May where several issues were raised in relation to what management are proposing.
In addition to a secured minimum wage increase each year the unions are proposing the claims overleaf. If you have any further claims please let your union know.
Your enterprise agreement is a legally enforceable document which provides you with wages and conditions specific to FedEx. The relevant underpinning modern awards that apply are: the Clerks - Private Sector Award 2010 for clerical/admin and office staff and the Road Transport and Distribution Award 2010 for Driver and Sorter classifications.
To ensure that you get the most out of the bargaining process you should look carefully at management's proposed agreement and think about what you would like to see improved.
The ASU is the union for clerical/admin workers in the private sector and the TWU is the union for all driver and sorter classifications.
