EA UPDATE 2
On Wednesday 27 March we will be holding meetings for union members as part of our campaign to win world class pay and conditions.
These meetings will be where we establish our EA Reference Group. This is a group of union members whose job it will be to represent your co-workers and help develop our claim of improvements to pay and working conditions across every department and every area at Crown.
The meetings will be held in Room 2 at Crown College at four different times throughout the day to ensure people from every department and every area can join in.
We will also be taking nominations from people to be on our bargaining team.
At the meetings we will look at each part of our five point plan for world class pay and conditions and develop a detailed list of changes we need to ensure we win a fair deal at the bargaining table.
This plan, endorsed by Crown staff at mass meetings last month, includes:
- World class pay and conditions
- World class training and career development opportunities
- Better work-life balance,
- Respect at our workplace
- Job security
Zoe Riddle, a dealer in the Mahogany Room is excited about going to the meeting. She urged people with issues they care about in their department or area to come along and speak up and have their say.
“It’s important that people get involved and have their say. If you don’t speak up how can we know what’s important to you or your area?”
Joanne Whyte, a dealer in Table Games East, said now is a great time to join your union and get involved in developing our claim.
“We need a strong union across all the departments, so we can fight together to win the best EA we possibly can. Now is great time to join.”

Over 700 take the pledge…
Our campaign to win world class pay and conditions at Crown is getting bigger and stronger day by day.
Over 700 Crown staff have already taken our pledge to stand together with all Crown staff to win a fair deal at Crown.
Staff from every department and every area have signed postcards at Crown or have done the pledge online on our campaign website.
Zoe Riddle, a dealer in the Mahogany Room, urged all Crown staff to do the pledge.
“It only takes a moment to do the pledge. But you can help send a strong message to Crown that we’re all standing together.”
“You’re more than just a number. You and everyone one of us can make a difference.”
“If you’ve done it already, then get all your co-workers, family and friends to do it too.”
