This agreement has been lodged with Fair Work Australia.
AG2013/104      Elite Security & Technology Group Pty Ltd      Elite Security & Technology Group Pty Ltd Enterprise Agreement 2013-2014      17 January 2013
ABN: 72 159 621 940. This company operates in NSW 2145


This company has just come into being on 24 Jul 2012 and this appears as a being a Greenfields agreement with no union involved. I say this because it has not been signed by any of the parties.

It has been designed to chip away at the pay and conditions contained in the Security Services Industry Award 2010. It has a flat rate pay scale for different shift classes and if you break it down to normal pay rates, it can be seen that the aggregate hourly pay rate is below the current rate. Take for example the shift Non-Rotating Weeknight Shift Worker - works Monday to Friday, outside 0600 hrs to 1800 hrs only. The pay rate for NSW level 1 for this shift is $21.82 ph whereas they are paying only $21.09 ph. The public holiday rate for level 1 NSW is $44.83 whereas the they are paying $36.02.

A nasty clause is at the end:

All Employees acknowledge and accept that ___________________________________ is their Employee Representative for the purposes of negotiating and signing this Employee Collective Agreement.

So the company nominates the person who will negotiate for you. This goes against the Fair Work Act 2009.
