The government is introducing new rules to ensure that all Australians can join the NBN, but some workers could find themselves out of a job.
The NBN is a fibre-to-the-node network, which will connect every home and business to the internet.
It will also be able to be connected to the existing fibre-optic network in Melbourne, and to the fibre-coaxial network in Darwin.
If you are an NBN member you will have a choice of two roles, with the job being similar to any other position.
However, you won’t be paid directly, but instead you will be required to work on an agreement that will help pay for the NBN.
Those who sign up for the new NBN contract will be expected to work full-time for NBN for a period of up to five years.
Workers will have the option to quit if they want, and are given the option of transferring their job to another NBN company.
This means they could be looking for a new job, or being let go by the company they are currently employed with.
If the new rules are put into place, there will be no more jobs for people who have already joined the NBN but have not yet signed up.
The Government says this is because they are “not ready” for the rollout.
However it is not clear whether it is the people who sign the agreement, or those who are already employed by NBN that will be affected by the changes.
Workplace Relations Minister Peter Slipper has been quick to announce the changes, saying the government is “not waiting for the results of the trial period” to know what will happen.
He said in a statement the Government was “fully committed to ensuring that NBN members have the right to participate in the NBN trial”.
“That is why we are introducing the rules to allow NBN members to join the service, which is now scheduled to begin in March 2019.”
We are also announcing new protections for employees and contractors in the new contract.
These protections are designed to ensure the safety of all NBN members and NBN contractors.
They include protections for workers’ rights, overtime, health and safety and workplace relations.”NBN spokesman Chris Henshaw said the company was “very proud” to have the NBN as part of its workforce.”
As part of our commitment to NBN, NBN is the first national fibre-based broadband service in Australia, and we are committed to providing our members with the best possible service,” he said.”
It is also important to recognise that there are still some key issues that need to be worked through with the relevant government bodies to ensure a smooth rollout.
“Labor has pledged to ensure people have the choice to switch jobs and will use the NBN to provide access to the NBN and other services, but Mr Hensaw said the government was “not quite ready” to do that yet.
