Bargaining breakthrough at UoQ

Terms for an enterprise agreement are set to be adopted at the University of Queensland. Yesterday union leaders told members that a four-hour meeting with management, “made excellent progress … we believe that we have reached an in-principle agreement on all outstanding matters.” With an agreement on pay reached weeks back a big outstanding issue was management’s push to widen the span of university open-hours in which support staff could work a standard shift.

On Tuesday Provost Aidan Byrne told (CMM May 29) the university community that management was prepared to put its offer to staff, with, or without union support. It seems the UoQ workforce will now get to vote on a unity-ticket proposal.
