Voting Results and Next Steps

  • the total number of valid votes received was 499

What happens next?

As a majority of relevant employees who cast a valid vote have approved the making of the Agreement, it will be submitted to the Fair Work Commission (FWC) for approval.

In the circumstances where the Agreement is approved by the FWC, the Agreement will come into operation 7 days after it is approved by the FWC and it will govern the minimum terms and conditions of your employment and replace your current enterprise agreement.

Once the Agreement is approved and comes into operation, Calvary will increase your wages in line with the Agreement and will proceed to process the back-payments.
