Australians will continue to receive timely weather forecasts and warnings despite further industrial action by forecasters, the Bureau of Meteorology says.
Community and Public Sector Union members will conduct another week of rolling stop-work action beginning on Wednesday.
Rolling strikes mean CPSU members will be able to walk off the job at times they judge will cause the maximum disruption to management, the union’s deputy secretary Beth Vincent-Pietsch said.
The CPSU said BoM management has refused to back down on cuts to rights and conditions that other government agencies have dropped.
The BoM said management and bargaining representatives are continuing to discuss areas of concern with the current draft enterprise agreement.
