MEDIA ALERT | Wednesday September 20 2023
Hundreds of Electrical Trades Union members and activists will rally at the ACT Legislative Assembly to express anger at the ACT Government’s role in suppressing the wages of Evoenergy workers.
Despite the worst cost of living crisis in recent memory, the company’s pay offer fails to keep pace with the cost of living.
The ACT Government effectively owns 50 per cent of Evoenergy through its wholly owned subsidiary, Icon Water. The Union is calling on the Chief Minister and Energy Minister to explain why they are allowing Evoenergy to treat hard working employees with contempt.
Who: ETU members and NSW Secretary Allen Hicks rally at ACT Legislative Assembly
When: 0930, Wednesday 20 September 2023
Where: ACT Legislative Assembly, 196 London Cct, Canberra ACT

ETU NSW/ACT Secretary, Allen Hicks, said the ACT Government had to act. “The Chief Minister and Energy Minister can not keep turning a blind eye when a company they effectively own is treating its workforce with such contempt. Evoenergy workers keep the lights on, working difficult and unpredictable shifts. They deserve better than a pay cut.
“The ETU intends to keep campaigning for a decent deal that meets the cost of living."
