ABC staff vote against wage freeze

Wednesday 30 September, 2020

ABC employees have voted against deferring their pay increases this year.

ABC employees have voted against deferring their pay increases this year, according to a The Sydney Morning Herald report, despite multiple requests from Communications Minister Paul Fletcher.
 
Mr Fletcher wrote to the ABC in May asking employees to pause a 2 per cent pay rise that will be enforced on October 1 as part of a new three-year enterprise agreement.
 
An email seen by The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age from the ABC's chief people officer Rebekah Donaldson on Wednesday said that staff had voted against pausing the pay rise.

When the ABC Managing Director, David Anderson, took a 5 per cent pay cut in April he told the government that he would need to seek permission from the Fair Work Commission for the staff wage freeze.
 
ABC chair Ita Buttrose asked staff to vote on the decision.
