Newsflash: COVID-19 Enterprise Agreements

During this time of uncertainty, employers may want to make changes to your conditions of work.  If they wish to do this, they will provide you with information and ask you to vote to indicate that you do, or don’t, agree with the change.  The vote will fail if the majority of those who do vote, vote no.  It is the majority who vote, not the majority of workers across a worksite, who determines the outcome.

So, for example, if there are 20 people working at a facility and 3 of these chose to vote and of these 2 votes are yes and 1 vote is no – the ‘yes’ vote will succeed.
