Employee and industrial relations

We are committed to having an engaged and collaborative relationship with our employees. Iluka respects our employees’ rights to freedom of association, including the right of each individual to join a union. Iluka does not inquire into employees’ union membership and does not keep union membership statistics.

Where Iluka is making significant operational changes, we provide timely disclosure and consult with employees in accordance with mechanisms under relevant industrial instruments. Through consultation we take into account employees’ circumstances and needs, and all reasonable measures are taken to mitigate any adverse effects of the changes on employees.

Iluka recognises our employees’ rights to collectively bargain. In each operational region in Australia, collective agreement conditions are renewed approximately every four years through bargaining with the employees’ representatives. The majority of Sierra Rutile employees are covered by a collective bargaining agreement negotiated with all mining companies in Sierra Leone and the United Mineworkers’ Union every three years. In 2019 a new three-year Collective Bargaining Agreement was negotiated and agreed with the United Mine Workers Union.

 

Rewards and benefits

Iluka has a pay-for-performance remuneration structure which rewards employees competitively for their expertise and contribution. We observe minimum conditions of employment under local laws, but remuneration is paid according to market which for most employees is well above minimum entitlements.

All employees have the opportunity for additional incentive rewards based on individual and company performance. Rewards are delivered partly in cash and Iluka shares in Australia and a number of other countries.

We offer flexible work arrangements and paid parental leave in all jurisdictions at or above local legislative requirements.
