Carter Holt Harvey workers vote on EBA

Union members queuing up to vote on the company's proposed Enterprise Agreement.

Production and maintenance workers at the Carter Holt Harvey Myrtleford site, who have been locked out by management for more than seven weeks, voted on June 8 and 9 to reject the company’s proposal for a new Enterprise Agreement covering the site.

The result of the secret ballot demonstrates that the company’s proposals are totally unacceptable to the workers.

The workers want a proper break from work over Christmas, decent income protection insurance coverage and a wage increase that reflects their major contribution to making Carter Holt Harvey a highly profitable business.
