Great news for Together members at Maurice Blackburn! Last year, union members and Maurice Blackburn reached in principle agreement regarding the Maurice Blackburn EA.
Reaching an in principle agreement meant that the EBA was put to a vote by all employees at MB. Union members were hoping for a strong 'YES' vote to secure the wins made in this agreement and show what the power of being union can achieve in the workplace.
So it's fantastic news to report that employees at MB have overwhelmingly endorsed the Maurice Blackburn Employees' Agreement 2021 negotiated by the bargaining team. Congratulations!
99% of staff who voted said 'YES' to approve the proposed Agreement. This is a ringing endorsement for the deal negotiated by union members.
Together/ASU members have worked hard to secure a fair increase to pay and conditions for members at Maurice Blackburn. The 99% approval vote shows the power of union membership at Maurice Blackburn.
The delegates on the national bargaining team deserve a huge thank you. They all put a huge amount of time and effort into these negotiations.
Union members should check their inbox for details about what's next with the approval process, including details about your back pay. If you can't find your email, contact your union office on firstname.lastname@example.org.
