What happened: with 54% of voters, only 23% supported the offer of higher education, which was strongly rejected by the campus branch of the National Tertiary Education Union. THE VU took the relatively unusual step of offering an offer to employees who did not have union support after lengthy discussions became bogged down and likely to remain so. Your enterprise agreement defines the terms and conditions of your work, including your compensation, leave, work settlement and dispute resolution process. Management`s message to employees during the vote was that the proposed enterprise agreement “offers many requirements that are above industry standards and, in some cases, are among the best in the industry.” While the union has described as insufficient the proposal for a wage increase, four annual wage increases from 1.4% this year to 2 per cent in 2021, the major problems appear to have been staff disturbances in restructuring management research, changing conditions for some teachers and reducing discipline and conflict and position allocation processes. (CMM September 10) Victoria University staff strongly rejected the management`s proposed enterprise agreement. Among the conditions that the university intends to apply are a 17.9% increase in contact time for teaching, an increase in working time from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. to 7 p.m., greater flexibility for university management in negotiating redundancy packages and a management right to recruit new employees on fixed-term contracts. We have created webinars to support the implementation and declaration of the agreement. Click below, and searh for TAFE-specific training to access these recordings. Melbourne`s Victoria University has called on employees to vote “yes” to a collective agreement for businesses, which increases employee working hours and streamlines dispute resolution procedures due to the deteriorating financial deficit at the university. If an enterprise agreement is in effect, the premium does not apply.

The second would be to ask the Fair Work Commission to terminate the old agreement, as it is no longer likely to support the new VU model. What is happening now: while the university now says it will ask employees about “Feedback” on the offer, Paul Adams of the NTEU is asking management to “listen to the collective voice of the staff and meet with the Union and negotiate a decent agreement”. Lorraine Ling says the proposed enterprise agreement is “the best offer VU can make to employees now and for the next four years.”
