Sunstate Airlines Pilot Enterprise Agreement

Before you start a new job or review your current employment contract, our industry and legal advisors are available to verify your contract or agreement to ensure that you receive the minimum standards under Australian labour law. If a job has a registered contract, the premium does not apply. However, it is common knowledge that collective bargaining improves wages and conditions of employment. AFAP`s experienced industrial team has successfully negotiated numerous Fixedsd Wing and Rotary pilot contracts in collaboration with pilot representatives. The Pilots Award 2010 defines the safety net for minimum working conditions for Australian pilots. The arbitration award includes conditions such as minimum wage and severance pay, severance pay, reimbursement of loss of licence insurance, pilot compensation, dispute resolution procedure and roll-and-roll rules. AFAP has played a key role in protecting and improving rights under the award through numerous important bids to the Fair Labour Commission (FWC). AFAP also ensures that the price is kept up-to-date and in line with annual salary assessments. The most effective way to address issues with your Union is to speak directly to one of your union industry employees who is experienced by e-mail or on 1800 177 244. Your agreement helps ensure that all Sunstate/QantasLink employees have better conditions and pay at work. As a member of the union, you have improved the working conditions of all employees. The prize, in collaboration with National Employment Standards (NES), is based on the Fair Labour Act 2009 (law) between pilots and their employers. Contracts/employment contracts cannot be sub-contributed to the terms of award or exclude the NES.

The price and the NES offer general aviation pilots a minimum of applicable conditions of employment. Registered contracts apply until they are terminated or replaced. The Fair Work Commission can also help employers and workers who are embarking on the “New Approaches” program. Learn more about the new approaches on the Fair Labour Commission website. Remember that there is always a lot of information and activity while negotiations are ongoing. You and your colleagues must continue to be active and engaged (more than ever) to ensure the implementation of the agreement and address issues in your workplace for the duration of the agreement. Ask your colleagues to join you as a member of Together to make the most of this new agreement. Congratulations, yesterday the Fair Labour Commission approved your corporate services administration agreement.
