NCRG Update: Members accept new pay offer, protected action paused

The vote on the new pay offer from North Coast Radiology Group closed today.

HSU members voted overwhelmingly in favour of accepting an in-principle agreement, outlined below:

  • 4% backpay to 1 July 2022
  • 4% from 1 July 2023
  • From 1 July 2024 – A minimum of 3% or CPI up to 5%, whichever is higher
  • From 1 July 2025 – A minimum of 3% or CPI up to 5%, whichever is higher

The Fair Work Commission has been notified that members have accepted the in-principle agreement. The notices to commence protected industrial action from Monday 18 September have now been revoked.

Union members still have the right to take further action if the drafting of the enterprise agreement doesn’t reflect what they have agreed to.

The hearing that was scheduled for 4pm today has now been discontinued.

This result could never have been possible without union members standing united. There is a lot more to do, but today shows the power of collective action. Let’s keep pushing for improvements to your workplace.
