Vu Enterprise Bargaining Agreement

Professor Ling said they would offer employees a 7.18 percent increase over the duration of the agreement, which would last until 2022. In recent months, 3 of the four branches of VU NTEU have been dethroned for redundancy. With negotiations for a new VU Enterprise agreement just before the start, it`s no coincidence that… Your enterprise agreement defines the terms and conditions of your work, including your compensation, leave, work settlement and dispute resolution process. 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”. 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. The third would be to engage in a longer tariff campaign and continue to advocate for change. If it is not possible to reach an agreement with the NTEU, the university could hold a new round of voting in a few months and re-test the mood of the staff. “After several consecutive years in deficit, Victoria University must now return to a surplus over the next four years and reduce spending and increase revenues and productivity,” said Lorraine Ling, team leader for enterprise negotiation at Victoria University. If an enterprise agreement is in effect, the premium does not apply. 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.

Victorian TAFE professors at universities in the duale sector are covered by the following duale sector agreements the proposed agreement does not have support from the National Tertiary Education Union, which was excluded from the process after management stated that it “is no longer in a position to accept any further changes” that the union wanted. What this means is a great loss for the management of LA VU, which is trying to change its educational structure and its financial base. It`s a loss that could lead management to the Murdoch U strategy.
