Workers at IBM's Baulkham Hills, Sydney facility were not happy with the offer IBM presented them
yesterday, and have sent representatives back to
negotiate, according to the Australian Services Union (ASU).
The employees in the company's Flightdeck at
had been prepared to strike for better pay and conditions. However, IBM
agreed in a meeting just over a week ago to present a new employment offer to the disgruntled employees.
Union members within the company
met last night to consider the offer. They decided they were
not happy with it as it stood and have sent their
representatives back to negotiate "with a clear message that there
must be more progress made on the deal", the ASU said this morning.
Negotiations would continue today, the ASU said, with the next meeting with IBM to occur on Monday, after which options
would be considered.
An IBM spokesperson told ZDNet.com.au the company was continuing to talk to employees at the site.
