NTEU Macquarie Branch is working to have the new Fair Work professional staff agreement approved before Christmas. This means that we want a meeting of members on Wednesday, December 5, 2018. After the low-cost vote, the agreement will be submitted to all staff members for voting within the week of December 10, 2018. This will give us a unique opportunity to redirect the expiry data of academic and professional staff agreements. It is important that we can finally resume negotiations on academic and professional staff in the next round, which gives members a much greater and more effective voice within this institution. The conditions of employment at the UTS are determined by various laws, collective agreements, common law and university police, practice and statutes. Although not known to all, the business bargaining system is inspired by the work of Samuel Becket, as evidenced by interviews and interviews at the University of Notre Dame Australia. The old agreement expired 18 months ago and talks on a new agreement have been going on for two years without anything happening. If you would like more information on collective bargaining for professional staff, please contact the NTEU Macquarie Branch Office (ext 7643 or [email protected]) or one of the NTEU Professional Staff Bargaining Team: Benjamin Dougall, Rob Davies, Nikki Balnave, Robbie Miller and Cathy Rytmeister. If you would like us to hold a union meeting at your workplace to discuss the progress/questions of enterprise bargaining, please contact the institution and we will set it up.

The National Tertiary Education Union campus branch says management has provided 1.5 percent of administrative salaries, half of what the union wants. And the NTEU adds that UNDA executives are not on super-bums - the university pays 12 percent, while the permanent staff of public universities (which is not the STI) gets 17 percent. We had previously agreed, at the request of UNDA management, to postpone this meeting because management had indicated that there would be progress in the handling of outstanding debts.
