Despite the hiccup causing us to have to put our new agreement to a vote again, it has been overwhelmingly supported (again) with it being voted up with 98% voting YES!
And despite the short time frame to lodge your vote we actually increased the number of people voting in the ballot.
As we highlighted when it first came to light there was a technical problem in the Fair Work Commission with final approval for the agreement, we have been able to secure support to have our new agreement finalised by late December. The VHIA today made an urgent application to the FWC to approve the agreement as soon as possible. .
This terrific outcome is a result of the work the Union did to make sure members were informed about when voting started and how they could lodge their vote. It’s also a testament to you, our members who encouraged your colleagues to vote YES and shared vital information to ensure such an overwhelming result.
Now that we’ve been able to secure such a strong YES vote it’s vital that we continue to grow our membership. Please ask your colleagues to join so that our collective voice is stronger and so they can benefit from everything the Union has to offer like protecting our rights at work, providing Professional Indemnity Insurance and delivering professional advice on workplace issues.
