NMP NATHALIA
EBA NEGOTIATIONS

A meeting was held on Tuesday afternoon 3rd June with Peter Ryan and Cameron to discuss the proposal the Union had put to the Company on behalf of Nathalia employees.

That proposal was for a 2 year agreement with 4% pay rise for each year of the agreement.

The Company rejected the Union’s proposal and have put the following counter offer:

1.    Maximum actual working time 7 hrs 40 min.
2.    No overweights.
3.    3% pay increase for each year of the agreement.

I will be in Nathalia to have further discussions with employees and the Company within the next fortnight.
