TWU national secretary Michael Kaine said the 2018 agreement required workers to fight with a guarantee of only 60 hours a month and below bonuses. The new agreement pays hourly rates of $22.41 versus $20.61 for the premium, with $31.28 on Saturday and $34.93 on Sunday. Do I currently have an enterprise agreement? Yes, yes. The Aerocare 2012 collective agreement remains the enterprise agreement that governs your wages and other conditions of employment. The agreement forced 3,000 baggage handlers, airport drivers, ramps, caterers, cleaners and check-in agents to problems with poverty, some of whom were forced to sleep at work between exhausting splitting teams. However, the fundamental theme is a new fair enterprise agreement for workers. The ASU is asking Aerocare to stop following the legal approach and instead negotiate a fair enterprise agreement. This request is part of the comprehensive trade union action plan announced by the TWU next year, as 200 enterprise agreements for 38,000 transport workers are coming to an end. No lawsuits and counter-measures – just in good faith for a fair enterprise contract for employees to negotiate. At the ASU`s request to negotiate Aerocare, it explained that it was considering its options. The information and instruments are available on the Commission`s website to support an agreement. Visit an agreement for more details. Registered contracts apply until they are terminated or replaced.
Aerocare states that the overall wage increase is between 18 and 30 per cent over the 2012 agreement rates. The Fair Work Commission terminated an employment contract that led cabin crew to sleep between their stations on makeshift beds at Sydney International Airport.

It is expected that the TWU will challenge any approval of the recent Aerocare agreement and will also attempt to denounce its existing 2012 agreement as being less good than the premium. “The new agreement aims to continually improve the compensation, conditions and career prospects of our employees,” said Glen Rutherford, CEO of Aerocare.
