Who is affected by this notice?
This notice is for all AQIS clients.
What's the issue?
The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries & Forestry (DAFF) is continuing negotiations with the Community & Public Sector Union (CPSU) and staff on a new Enterprise Agreement for the next three years.
The CPSU has advised the Department that a stoppage of work for two hours will take place on Thursday 11 August 2011.
The CPSU has also advised that further industrial action in range of activities may occur from 5 pm on Thursday 11 August.
The Department is very aware of the impact that industrial action might have on our service delivery and is continuing negotiations with the CPSU in the hope that an agreement can be successfully concluded and industrial action can be avoided.
The Department will be minimising the impact on our staff, clients and stakeholders. For further assistance, please contact your regional AQIS office until further notice.
