Telstra Protected Action – Bans

BAN ON DUTIES REQUIRED TO BE UNDERTAKEN BY EMPLOYEES DURING UNPAID TIME

Members are advised that this ban has been WITHDRAWN due to Telstra’s threat on docking pay for refusing to log on in unpaid hours.

  1. BAN ON PERFORMANCE OF ESSENTIAL CUSTOMER SERVICING WORK (ongoing)

Members are directed NOT to accept recalls under “essential customer servicing” “ie the three levels of restriction”.  This means, if you are listed on a recall roster or “on call”, or “emergent call” or “immediate call” you are directed NOT to attend to any duties associated with these arrangements:Note: This action does not include 000 call centre staff, and this action does not apply where there is a threat to life or the safety of customers (ie. commonly known as life and limb exemptions).  Contact the Branch Office if there is a management request to override the bans on life and limb grounds.

  1. BAN ON PERFORMANCE OF EMERGENCY WORK (ongoing)

Members are directed NOT to accept recalls under “emergency work” provisions.  This means, if you receive a recall for emergency work, (that is – you were not on an essential customer servicing arrangement and you were not notified prior to ceasing work), you are directed NOT to attend to that work – including any remote activities such as telephone advice.
Note: Life and limb exemptions apply as above.

  1. 24HR STOPPAGE – TUESDAY 12 MARCH 2019

Due to the escalation of the dispute by Telstra relating to the unpaid time logon bans (Ban1), members are directed TO STOP WORK for 24 hours for the whole of today – Tuesday 12 March.

Note: Life and limb exemptions apply as above.
