Negotiations for the replacement Evoenergy Enterprise Agreement are continuing and a revised offer has been made to employees.

The revised offer includes an 11% increase to wages over a three-year period. Evoenergy will continue to make employer superannuation contributions of 15% (legislated requirements are 11%, increasing to 12% from 2025).

Our goal is to reach an agreement which recognises the hard work of our employees while balancing customers’ expectations around energy costs. Evoenergy employees will soon vote on the revised offer.

Disappointingly, the Electrical Trades Union (ETU) is continuing to pursue protected industrial action. These actions aim to cause disruptions to how we plan and deliver our work for network maintenance and customer connections. While customer impacts from this action have so far been minimal, there will be impacts to customer-requested works that require an electricity outage, as well as some planned network maintenance.

Evoenergy is contacting customers who have scheduled appointments, or who are attempting to schedule appointments with us to discuss delays and rescheduled appointment dates.

Customers who have been notified about upcoming outages for network maintenance may also receive a follow up notification from us if works need to be cancelled and rescheduled later. Where we can, we will give customers as much notice of these cancellations as possible.

As always, safety for our employees, customers, and contractors is our number one focus and we thank you for your patience.

Evoenergy’s priority remains the safe and timely resolution of unplanned electricity outages for our customers and this work will always be addressed first.

Customers should continue to call us on 13 10 93 in the event of an electricity fault or emergency.
