After 20 months of frustration...finally a breakthrough.
BMA and SBU agree to framework agreement
Today BMA and the unions agreed a framework agreement that will guide the finalisation of the BMA Enterprise Agreement.
Further work is required to finalise local mine site details. The Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations has offered the support of Fair Work Australia to assist in these final discussions.
All parties are continuing to work in good faith to complete an Agreement as soon as possible.
BMA and the unions acknowledge the role of Mr Bill Kelty in the mediation process to date.
