AMOU Delivers Permanent Employment for ROV Operators

In an Australian first, the AMOU has signed a greenfields agreement with Fugro TMS to provide permanent employment for our ROV members. Under this historic deal, ROV operators will be employed for 180 days of duty per annum, in the case of the ROV Superintendent the starting salary will be $253,260 per annum with a "minimum" 5% annual wage increases. ROV operators will also receive an increase in superannuation contributions over the life of the Agreement taking the employer superannuation contribution from 9% to 12% by 2015.

The AMOU has also signed a greenfields agreement with Fugro TSM for our ROV members engaged on a casual basis. Essentially the same deal as the permanent ROV's with the starting day rate for an ROV Superintendent at $1758.75.

A copy of the ROV Agreements can be found in the 'Members' section under 'Find Your Enterprise Agreement' - 'ROV Enterprise Agreements'.
