The power of your union
When you join your union you contribute to a range of support and resources. It means you benefit when you need it and you help when someone else needs it. This is how as union members, no matter where we work, we are never alone.
In recent months, at Google, we have had significant success individually and collectively. Here are just some examples of what happens when we work together:
- Legal specialists have reviewed and advised on numerous contracts
- Industrial specialists have represented union members in individual meetings
- Members have collectively negotiated directly with Google management
- With legal advice, many members have successfully renegotiated higher redundancy amounts
- Industrial specialists have assisted members with successful redeployment applications meaning they get to keep their job
- Members have the knowledge and support to negotiate special accommodations and return to work plans
This is a snapshot of the success that union members have had and will continue to have. Join your union today
and make a change for the better in our industry.
IT Remuneration Report 2023
Pay transparency remains a huge issue in our sector. A lack of reliable information about current salaries means workers are often flying blind when it comes to pay negotiations.
The good news is that successful union campaigns at both employer and government levels are ending pay secrecy
. This changes the status quo from one that benefits employers, to one that empowers workers with knowledge to expect what they are worth.
Professionals Australia’s biennial ICT Employment and Remuneration survey is one of our sectors largest and most comprehensive salary reviews. The more survey participants the better our ability to ensure reliable reporting on the state of wages and conditions in our industry. This year we hit a record number of participants.
The resulting ICT Employment and Remuneration Report 2023
is due out later this year..
