Arnott’s factory workers have voted in favour of a new enterprise agreement which will secure their existing conditions and add new benefits.
Throughout the three-year term of the agreement, all workers will receive reasonable pay increases, which means their wage will keep up with the cost of living.
Under the new deal, workers will receive overtime paid at double time from the start of the shift, where it was previously only paid at time and a half for the first hour and a half.
Afternoon and night shift workers will also get shift allowance on public holidays when they are taken as time off, which they previously didn’t get paid for at all.
Arnott’s workers are thrilled with their new agreement, which secures their rights and conditions, thanks to the collective action of United Voice members.
