Deal done at Uni Wollongong

Professional staff have voted for a management-union backed enterprise agreement

The terms are largely in-line with deals on comparable campuses, (CMM March 29), including extending 17 per cent super to fixed term staff from mid-2022.  There are also clauses the union is particularly pleased with, including for casual staff who want to convert to continuing employment.  Staff voting are also happy, with the in-favour vote said to be 90 per cent plus. Next on the agenda is an academic staff agreement, which is said to be imminent.

Once that’s done management and union can get on with arguing about next year’s Ramsay Western Civilisation Centre-funded degree.
