Enterprise Bargaining Agreement University Of Adelaide


Apr 21


According to the Fair Work Commission, the agreement is negotiated between employers and workers on their wage rates and terms of employment. Jacqui Stockley Business Manager, Adelaide Business School P: (8) 831 39277 E: jacqueline.stockley@adelaide.edu.au “Business agreements can be tailored to the needs of some businesses. An agreement must be generally better for a worker when compared to the corresponding prizes or rewards.” The National Tertiary Education Union (NTEU) has informed its members by email that the next approval meeting of the new agreement will take place on 3 October. General Secretary Grahame McCulloch will visit Adelaide from Melbourne to discuss the new agreement with union members. careers.adelaide.edu.au/cw/en/job/504761/senior-lecturerassociate-professor-business-analytics NTEU members across Australia were all invited to a special briefing on “the impact of the Fair Labour Commission`s decision to denounce the Murdoch University Enterprise Agreement.” The briefing is scheduled to take place next Tuesday at Napier G03 for UofA members. If the employee chooses option 2 – redeployment, he is obliged to inform his superior in writing, who then informs the staff department of redeployment@adelaide.edu.au. Hr will provide the agent with a link to the online redeployment registry to allow the agent to formally record his or her data. The University of Adelaide Enterprise Agreement 2014-2017 expires at the end of the academic year. Negotiations on the new agreement had begun three months before the expiry and the ninth formal committee met earlier this week.

The University of Adelaide and the Eu will now proceed with internal authorisation procedures before making a detailed announcement to the Community on the content of the proposed agreement. All staff will vote on this point. In August, the Fair Labour Commission announced the Murdoch University operating contract. Concerns have been expressed within NTEU subsidiaries about the immediate impact of the decision on some 30 universities across Australia. What has traditionally existed under EB agreements, such as trade union control of management decisions, fixed-term employment contracts and rules on how to discipline staff, is now questionable in light of this decision. The Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Pasquale Quester, today sent an email to staff members informing members that an agreement in principle had been reached. “We are pleased to inform you that we have reached an agreement in principle on all issues, including the proposed salary increases.” Earlier this month, employees at the University of Sydney at the Western University of Sydney declared themselves on strike over pay and working conditions.
