Enterprise Agreement Representation

Many members have asked us to explain the basis of our representation of our members. They have been told by the QNMU that only the QNMU can represent employees. We don’t blame the QNMU for saying that; if we had a monopoly and suddenly a new competitor which charges half as much and does the job twice as well came into the field then we might be tempted to tell “porkies” too. But the truth is that in the private sector, under federal law, it is black and white. There are no shades of grey. We have the same representational rights as the QNMU. The only thing that is different is that at least one person in each workplace has to appoint us in writing. Once that is done, we are equal in every respect. We are now bargaining on behalf of members across many Enterprise Agreements and doing it better than the QNMU.
