Airservices Australia reaches in-principle enterprise agreement for air traffic control service

Following extensive discussions, Airservices Australia has reached an in-principle agreement with Civil Air on the terms of a three-year enterprise agreement covering our air traffic controllers (ATCs).

The agreement has been sent to ATCs for consideration ahead of a ballot to be held from 28 June to 3 July. The proposed agreement offers an 11.2 per cent pay rise over three years as well as significant improvements to conditions, including allowances.

Acting Airservices Australia CEO Peter Curran said the proposal was the result of extensive good faith negotiations with Civil Air, the union which represents the majority of ATCs and supporting air traffic services staff, and a number of individual bargaining representatives.

“We’ve been at the bargaining table since November to achieve an outcome that is fair and reasonable for the employees who manage our airspace and enable us to continue providing a vital service to our economy, our stakeholders and the travelling public,” Mr Curran said.
