The Australian Services Union has given global computing giant IBM a deadline of 5pm today to comply with a decision handed down last week by Fair Work Australia which it says obliges the company to negotiate with the union in good faith, or it will seek further orders against the company from the Court.
The Australian Services Union plans to meet with its 80 members working at IBM’s Baulkham Hills Flight Deck centre shortly to decide on its next step, after the computing giant failed to meet the ASU’s Friday deadline to start good faith negotiations.
