United Voice delegates will be holding meetings for workers soon to update everyone on bargaining. Look out for details!

During the most recent bargaining meeting the following was discussed:

Wages Offer  

  • SNP is offering a 3 year agreement with a $300 (gross) bonus payment.
  • Wage increases of:
    •  3% for the first year,
    • 2% the second year,
    • 2.5% in the third year

United Voice Leaders will discuss this offer with members and seek feedback

Notice of change of roster 

SNP originally sought to reduce the notice period for roster changes down to 3 days’ notice instead of 7 days’ notice. This would have major impact on all staff. United Voice Delegates raised the very real concerns of members and have won the retention of the current 7 day roster notice period

Secondary employment

SNP originally sought all employees to disclose their secondary employment and that SNP could allow or disallow this employment. United Voice delegates told SNP that a large number of members would be adversely affected and it would limit the earning potential of workers who could not rely on sufficient rostered hours from SNP. United Voice delegates won this point and SNP will not have the right to restrict your ability to work another job.

T3 control room operators  

United Voice members believe that control room operators in T3 are underpaid on Level 2 considering what tasks control room operators perform. SNP claims that control room operators are paid correctly; United Voice is seeking from SNP to provide a hard copy of duties .


In the last EA United Voice members won an increase in minimum part time hours from 23 to 26 hours per week. SNP is trying to wind back minimum rostered hours making it even harder for SNP workers to live on their minimum hours. United Voice members are fighting to retain the current minimum hours per week for part time employees.
