Dollars for Murdoch U casuals

MU pitches its proposal to cancel a pay-rise

The university is asking staff to vote for an enterprise agreement variation which includes dropping the October pay rise (1 per cent, plus a one-off $500 added to base).

But management’s proposal also includes “a one-off payment of $500 for casuals and low-income fixed-term and continuing staff.”

The promise is in an email to staff setting out the content of the proposed EAV which urges casuals to read what’s involved. It’s the $500 which leads.
