Academic Enterprise Agreement Uow

Vice-Chancellor Paul Wellings welcomed the agreement in a statement on Thursday. 84% of the approximately 400 employees at the online meeting voted in favour of the alternative agreement for academic staff. And although they did not vote for the agreement for professional (non-academic) staff, “we would not actively oppose it.” If professional service employees vote in favour of the amendment and academic staff vote to adopt their proposed amendments, both documents will be submitted for approval by the Fair Work Commission. If an agreement is not supported, the university will not continue to submit one of the two variants for approval. After staff at the University of Wollongong voted Wednesday night in favour of the agreement negotiated with management, a forced purchase system turned out to be a deal-maker. Local representatives on the University`s Joint Advisory Committee (JCC) have reached agreement on changes to enterprise agreements that will help UOW return to a sustainable financial position. Note: Academic staff, apprentices and apprentices, as well as employees with individual employment contracts, do not have the right to vote to amend the Professional Services Agreement. If both agreements are supported and the Fair Labour Commission approves the amendment, the amendment will come into force at a date set by the Commission for fair work. Until then, the provisions of the existing agreement will apply. At a meeting on Friday, union members approved the agreement reached for university staff, which would ensure that there would be no forced layoffs and pay cuts in the enterprise agreement by May next year.
