AHEIA ambivalent

Management lobby the Australian Higher Education Industrial Association is both pleased and not so much with the Fair Work Commission. AHEIA is happy that the Fair Work Commission knocked the union back on its proposal to pay academics whose work takes more than standard hours and for award rules on professional staff overtime, (CMM February 22) But AHEIA is concerned that commissioners are reading proposed enterprise agreements line by line, which is delaying approvals of some agreements.  Heaven forfend that the umpire should question what university managements and union have agreed on.
