Western Power changes IR strategy

Western Power is aiming to become the first WA government corporation to implement a collective agreement, and will do so by going straight to its workers after a breakdown in negotiations with the Australian Services Union.

Western Power has been stonewalling negotiations with no movement in the thrust of its "offer" to employees, which features slashing of sick and long service entitlements for new employees. There have only been minor adjustments to the fringes of the original offer by WP. It has little or no content of the ASU's claims when the "negotiations" (stonewalling by WP) began nearly 1 year ago. By the way, "The Union" did not reject the WP CA offer, the Union Members (each one a WP employee) did. The Union officers relayed the decision by the member's delegates (based on discussions with other members at their workplaces) reached at a meeting last Thursday.
