Fair Work Commission approves new Enterprise Agreement


16 January 2014

We are pleased to let you know that the new Enterprise Agreement comes into effect today, following approval last week by the Fair Work Commission.

"We have been able to move quickly to implement some elements of the new Enterprise Agreement, even before formal ratification," said John Dixon, Acting Director Human Resources. "In particular, we made sure staff received the agreed salary increases in November, and the Vice-Chancellor approved an additional concessional day for the 2013/14 Christmas closedown.

"Other areas require additional planning, and HR will be working closely with faculties over coming months to implement other elements of the agreement, including the new scholarly teaching and early-career development fellowships. The implementation of new initiatives will be announced in future editions of Staff News or on the intranet."
