Jon De Unamuno – Director

My passion is helping companies with unionised and change resistant cultures achieve positive outcomes.

I have deep Industrial Relations and Human Resources experience working with employers in capital intensive industries with significant pressure from international competition, digital transformation and an unsustainable cost basis.

Recently I have assisted employers achieve:

  • Positive cultural change through consistent Industrial Relations and Human Resource strategies,
  • Industrial Relations outcomes and enterprise agreements that deliver significant cost reductions, flexibility and productivity improvements,
  • Reduced costs on major capital investments and third-party contractor maintenance spend,
  • Major organisational restructures,
  • Increased employee engagement during major change management programs, and
  • Merit based performance and recruitment processes within blue-collar work groups.
