Respect and recognition – Bankwest EA negotiations

Jason Chan – Executive General Manager, Bankwest

At our last bargaining meeting with Bankwest they provided a revised pay offer of 0.2% in 2022 and 0.2% in 2023 however they have tied this paltry increase to even greater concessions.  

The most insulting part – their pay offer isn’t even industry leading. Other major financial institutions are paying between 3.25% to 3.5%. This included CBA who secured 3.25% in the first year of their EA.

We write to you to express our deep disappointment at the latest position Management have presented at negotiations. Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic Bankwest colleagues have continued to ensure that the banks customers have received exceptional service and helped deliver the largest Group profit over all the majors – $8.4bn.

However, in recognising our hard work Management have decided to try to claw back long-standing protections in our EA and provide a substandard pay offer.
When other majors are recognising their employees with salary increases of 3.25%, it is only right and fair we receive the same.

We are calling for you to revise your offer to include

• 3.25% in 2021, 2022 and 2023

• Maintain the promotions and overtime clause

• Drop your claim to include CBA roles as part of the redeployment provisions

Bankwest has a unique culture because of the way we uphold our values. We believe our position protects that culture and fairly recognises our contributions.

We look forward to your response.
