Events

Dash for Cash

Dash for Cash

We are receiving some feedback from around the place about the Dash for Ca$h and it appears that some members are unsure of what the CANZ position is on this. We need to be clear that the CANZ position has not changed and is the same from day 1. Here is a paragraph from the last update. Through this process the CANZ position has not changed. This process must be bargained into the Collective Agreement as it is a change in terms and conditions. It will also provide job security and a shared responsibility in the application and development of the PRA as no changes can be made without the agreement of both parties. We are not against the idea of a healthy and fit for purpose work force, just against the application of it and that it is not in the CEA.
